Dear Tib r 
I was very pleased to get y ur phone call - at a time when 
my spirits were rather 1 w I am 1 king f rward to the new version 
of your paper. Incidentally I should perhaps qualify my statement 
. , i. 
that A did nit get the book you sent t me. n fact I got galley 
pro ifs of a bo k in Marx and everything else, without title, author 
or sen er, but it came from Menlo -^ark. I could not think 
who sent it; it seemed to me rather chatty if I may say so. 
Who is the author? I can't remember him. Perhaps this is not what 
you sent. 
Going back to your problem of w: at decides whether the benefits 
of technical pro ress are passed on to the wage earner or to the 
buyer of the pr duct: 1 am inclined to link it up with the product 
cycle, i.e. in the mi le of it there is a phase when the 
productivity increase i3 very strong ( scale, learning ) and 
very great savings are simply to likely to be passed to the workers, 
first, because they w uldcreate to great inequalities, and also 
because the extension of the market and the increased compteition 
in tois p ase w uld make it unlikely H wever, its nly a hunch. 
I want to ask y u a favour Can y u send me the address of 
the Stereo Review which you used to get - provi ed y u have it 
at hand, Snd also the am unt f yearly subscription including 
p stage t Eunpe I sh uld like to subscribe to it .because of 
the reviews of c urse. J am n>t quite happy with the German 
equivalents. ( Just j t it down when you send your paper). 
I sent y >u my tiny wage opus which is all I am able to do 
^lease accept my best wishes for Christ* 3 3 + ^ ev? *e&r 
to you and Elizabeth. I hope it will be a pleasant h liday f r you.
