Heinrich Marx's Capital

Just got Heinrich's Marx's Capital. Can see that I disagree with the first two points.
As Grossman made clear, consumption is important to the capitalist class. Why would
anyone deny this given the pornographic consumption in which they engage? They
may try to (or may only be able to) maintain an "infinite" series of sums for capitalist consumption precisely by accumulation, and to
the extent that accumulation interferes with their own consumption, accumulation could likely then
lose meaning for them and they may withdraw.
Second point: Heinrich is clearly wrong that capitalism can only develop on the basis of formally free wage labor.
