Hi DGöçmen , I think there are Marxist theories and not only one. I
recall David Gordon (important theorist of Social Structure of
Accumulation School SSA, passed away some years ago) asserting: "I am
Marxist and I am not willing to discuss it".
SSA and French Regulation School are eclectic:
Marx+Keynes+Institutionalism (Veblen).
In my view eclecticism is contradictory; however I think that is
necessary to be respectful with eclectic Marxisms (like Regulation
I think, non-eclectic Marxism is the right one but it do not imply that
I reject Regulation School at all. On the contrary I am sure that
non-eclectic Marxism
should learn from SSA and French Regulation Schools.
In short, I think that Regulation theories are Marxist if they accept
such adjective.
