La teoría marxista del valor: Balance crítico de los debates recientes


  • Michael De Vroey


Marxist economic theory has gone through a severe crisis in the last few years. This crisis reveals itself in the disagreement between the different interpretations. The value theory, as Marx's analytical construction basis, is used in this article to present a panoramic view of the different current versions with an emphasis on the idea of abstract labor, where value takes a monetary form, in relationship to political economy and general equilibrium, or the neoricardian theory. The last part of the article, states that Marx theoretical ambiguity can only be overcome once the failure of some parts of its analysis recognized and it accepts certain clues stated in modern heterodox economic though, such as the idea of "separation" and its obliged symmetry monetary economics.
