Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

Written on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Piero Sraffa's Production of Commodities by Means of Commodities, the papers selected and contained in Sraffa and the Reconstruction of Economic Theory account for the work completed around the two central aspects of his contribution to economic analysis, namely the criticism of the neoclassical (or marginalist) theory of value and distribution, and the reconstruction of economic theory along the lines of the classical approach. Divided into three volumes, Sraffa and the Reconstruction of Economic Theory debates the most fruitful routes for advancements in this field and their implications for applied and policy analysis.
This third volume collects papers concerning the evolution of Sraffa's ideas and the interpretation of his contribution in relation to other streams in economics, methodology and the history of economic thought.
