Book Description

In these two volumes, David P. Levine undertakes the systematic clarification and further development of the theoretical contributions of classical political economy. It focuses on such central issues in economic theory as:

* need, value and exchange

* capital and its production

* the concept of labour

* growth

* the firm

* price determination.

Throughout the treatment is at a high level of abstraction.
