Overview

Theories of Surplus Value is a draft manuscript written by Karl Marx between January1862 and July 1863. It is mainly concerned with the West European theorizing about Mehrwert (added value or surplus value) from about 1750, critically examining the ideas of British, French and German political economists about wealth creation and the profitability of industries. At issue are the source, forms and determinants of the magnitude of surplus value and Marx tries to explain how failing to solve basic contradictions in its labour theories of value the classical school of political economy eventually broke up, leving only "vulgar political economy" which no longer tried to provide a consistent, integral theory of capitalism, but instead offered only an eclectic amalgam of theories which seemed pragmatically useful or which justified the rationality of the market economy.

Karl Marx was a philosopher, economist, sociologist, journalist, and revolutionary socialist. Born in Prussia, he later became stateless and spend much of his life in London in the United Kingdom.
