Many economists and philosophers, ranging from Aquinas and Ibn Khaldun to Adam Smith and Marx, have declared deep connections between value and labor.  Is there such a connection?  And if so what form does it take? Two of the most prominent economists on the LeftPrabhat Patnaik and John Roehmer--respond to these questions and their relevance to the global political economy today.
