Studies in the Labour Theory of Value

£14.99

Product description

Professor Meek believes that man economists have tended to miss the point of Marx's labour theory by not appreciating its origins and the problems it was originally designed to meet. He therefore leads up to a discussion of Marxist economics and of the principal criticisms levelled against it by a critical analysis of the development of the concept of Value in "classical" political economy; and discusses the adequacy of the Labour Theory of Value in relation to present-day economic realities.

In the long Introduction added for this new edition, Professor Meek carries this discussion past the point where he left it when this book was first published in 1956. In particular, he considers more fully the connections between the labour theory and Marx's concept of alienation; and a survey of recent debates about the "transformation problem leads to reformulation of Marx's theory in terms of a set of commodity-production models.
