The value of Marx analysis


  • Francesco Schettino

    (Department of public economics, University of Rome 'La Sapienza')


Questo articolo indaga sulla reale portata dell'analisi di Marx, basata in maniera fondamentale sulla propria teoria del valore e del plusvalore. L'idea innovativa dell'articolo consiste nel mostrare come sia possibile capire realmente l'analisi della teoria del valore di Marx, partendo da Marx stesso, ovvero dall'inizio del suo più rilevante lavoro (Il Capitale), esaminando quindi come sia il lavoro l'unica qualità che è comune a tutte le merci consentendone la confrontabilità e la scambiabilità. Conseguentemente, parlare di Marx e della sua analisi, osservando unicamente il 'famoso' mistificante sistema di equazioni di prezzo a-là Sraffa significa indagare su una forma (il prezzo) prescindendo da conoscerne la sostanza (il valore).
