Abstract

The relationship between the proof of the existence of the Standard commodity contained in section 37 of Sraffa’s (1960) book and the proof supplied to Sraffa by Besicovitch on 21 September 1944 is explored. Some reasons which led Sraffa to omit this proof in his book in favor of an incomplete argument is postulated.
