Two distinguished senior economists, Andrew Kliman and Alan Freeman, and a gifted young philosopher who comments frequently on this blog, Chris Byron, have collaborated on a response to my recent blog posts and my associated journal article, "A Critique and Reinterpretation of Marx's Labor Theory of Value." They are putting their essay up on a website with which they are associated, Marxist-Humanist Initiative, and they have very kindly given me permission to reproduce it on this blog. Tomorrow or the next day, I will post their essay here, and then in subsequent days I will reply to their critique of my arguments. This is difficult stuff, folks, but I think the contribution of Professors Kliman and Freeman and Mr. [one day to be Dr.] Byron will considerably raise the intellectual level of the blog, so batten down the hatches.
