"She [Beatrice Potter] made out of Marx's concept of commodity fetishism, not a critique of capitalism, but a critique of Marx. 'In the weird Marxist world' - not at all recognisably the world of Richard Potter - "whilst men are automata, commodities have souls; money is incarnated life, and capital has a life process of its own! The idea of an 'automaton owner', thus making profit without even being conscious of the existence of any desire to be satisfied, is, to any one who has lived within financial or industrial undertakings, in its glaring discrepancy with facts, nothing less than grotesque." - My Apprenticeship, p.445. "This improves the language of her unpublished 'The Economic Theory of Karl Marx' without disturbing its sense." - Harrison (1999) pp. 137 and 363.
