Criticizes Emmanuel's theory of unequal exchange for its inconsistent use of Marxian categories. Identifies unequal exchange as a process which keeps the rate of profit high in developed sectors of production and emphasizes its magnitude. Suggests that the deviation of observed prices from prices of production may be a more important component of unequal exchange than the deviation of prices of production from values. -from Authors
