Re: distribution and exchange

Given that I just "borrowed" that triangle for a paper, I would certainly like to get things straight!

Hi Yrjö,
sorry to have missed you in Helsinki. It was interesting meeting all the students and staff. I hope you are having a good time writing in the warmer climes of Italy.
The website with the EXCHANGE in a different subtriangle is on the website URL: http://www.edu.helsinki.fi/activity/pages/chatanddwr/activitysystem/. It is different from those that you had in your 1987 or 1993 (testbench) texts.
I am very much interested in receiving a copy of the paper.

Michael, if exchange has jumped from the S-C-Rules subtriangle to C-O-DivLab subtriangle, it is a mistake committed by someone who made the graphics for the web page. Please tell me where this faulty diagram is exactly and I'll get it fixed.

As to your question, you might be interested in a new paper in which I discuss the spheres of production, exchange, consumption (though not distribution) - and not using the triangle this time. The paper is titled VALUES, RUBBISH, AND WORKPLACE LEARNING and I'll be happy to send it to you if you want.

I had some trouble with remembering where in YE's triangle go the terms DISTRIBUTION and EXCHANGE. Today I realized for the first time that YE used to have EXCHANGE in the S-C-RULES subtriangle but on the website has it in the C-O-DivLab subbtriangle.
Does anyone have an idea when this change happened and why it happened?
Has anyone worked on the fact whether it made sense to overlay production-consumption-exchange-distribution, which Marx discussed at the society level onto YE's triangle, which deals with any local, concretely realized activity?
Thanks for any pointers.
