  If you guys can keep a secret then I will admit to having written much of that portion of the Wikipedia article on Neurath. Mums the word.  :)

thanks, this is all so useful, will readps in wikipedia they mention the impact on Neurath of wartime resource allocation, an important example (conversion of factories, direct allocation of goods by perceived use value; there's a great anecdote on  that in the biography of Tony Mazzocchi.)Which is not of course to dodge the question of the use of money in the transition period

 People in the anglophone world often forget that Otto Neurath, one of the founders of the Vienna Cirlce, was, besides being a logical empiricist, was also a Marxist.
 Here is a link to an article on Neurath as Marxist.
 BTW in the article on Friedrich Hayek, of which I'm a co-author, there is a discussion of Otto Neurath as a participant in the socialist calculation debates with Hayek. The whole debate started in the first place when Hayek's mentor, Ludwig von Mises, published an article in 1920, "Economic calculation in the socialist commonwealth," which had been written by Mises in response to Neurath's writings in defense of socialist economic planning.
 BTW Mises' 1920 article can be found here.
