Advanced & Applied Marxian Economics
Rick Wolff

This will be an intensive seminar in Marxian economics designed for those who already have a basic knowledge, drawn from Marx’s Capital, of most of the following topics: the labor theory of value, the theory of surplus value, and theories of profit, capital accumulation, circuits of capital, relations among industrial, financial and merchant capitals, and differences among feudal, capitalist and other different class structures. The two chief purposes of the seminar are (1) to discuss Marxian economic theory as a whole (including some criticisms of it), and (2) to apply it to urgent current economic and political issues.

The classes will run for four consecutive Tuesdays, July 20 and 27, and August 3 and 10.

Richard D. Wolff is Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he taught economics from 1973 to 2008. He is currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University, New York City. He also teaches classes regularly at the Brecht Forum in Manhattan.
