Roma "La Sapienza", Lab.Social Critique) with essays by G. Carchedi, A. Freeman, P. Giussani, A. Kliman, A. Ramos The Conference is organized in such a way that the authors, together with the scholars and the politicians invited, will provide an answer to the following questions: 1. Has Marx's transformation procedure been proven inconsistent? 2. Is Bortkiewictz's interpretation of Marx's value theory Marx's own theory? 3. Is it true that simultaneous valuation leads necessarily to an interpretation of exploitation purely in physical terms? If this is true, is this valuation compatible with Marx's theory of exploitation in terms of surplus labour? 4. Has Marx's theory of the tendential fall in the profit rate been disproved?
