I have a graduate student who is writing a paper that includes a section
where he argues why exploitation (capitalist) is bad. He was curious, and
I couldn't help him much, whether there have been relatively recent (say,
post WWII) sophisticated articles written by economists who have taken on
the Marxian theory of unpaid labor. In other words, he's looking for the
strongest case neoclassicals or others have made against Marxist theories
of exploitation, as a normative or organizing concept.

Can anyone help him and myself out with references and/or arguments? Or
have neoclassicals basically ignored Marxist arguments after JB Clark?
