The Labor Theory of Value and Sraffa’s Standard Commodity with Markup Pricing

Summary:
I have uploaded a working paper with the post title.

Even with such variations, total constant capital, total variable capital, total surplus value, and the rate of profits are unaltered by evaluation at labor values and at prices of production in Sraffa’s standard system. These results buttress those who see in the standard commodity a solution for Marx’s so-called transformation problem.
