I do not understand the importance of the either/or approach to the
Brenner thesis.  Britain exploited its own people within the market, just
as Brenner says.  Britain profited from imperialism and forced labor.  In
addition, one could see the cheap labor supply of Irish workers within
Britain as either part of the market or as the result of imperialism.
Shouldn't the question be to understand the interplay between the two
blades of the scissors?
