Labour Theory of Value and the Uncertainty in Capitalist Mode of Production
This article aims to offer a reply to Steedman′s critique of Marx′s labour theory of value. Although this critique having been there for about three decades, the anti-critiques from Marxists are up to date flawed with fatal limitedness, losing sight of an important dimension of labour theory of value, i.e., without taking it as a theoretical tool of understanding the uncertainty rooted in capitalist mode of production.

The first part of this article revisits the controversy initiated by Steedman. Part 2 discusses Marx′s dual theory of market value and Rubin′s interpretation. Our view is that, if Rubin′s interpretation were accepted, a refutation of Steedman′s critique towards Marx will be impossible. Part 3 of this article explores the possible reconstruction of market value in the perspective of the dynamics in the pivoting of market value. We concludes that, the relationship between the standard condition of production and value is not, as argued by Steedman, of deterministic and one-directional character. For Marx, Labor theory of value is applied to analyze the uncertain relation between the means and the end, the condition and the result of capitalist production. Meanwhile, another reply is attempted towards the negative comment on labor theory of value made by contemporary evolutionary economist such as G. M. Hodgson. In our view, Marx′s labour theory of value is not irrelevant as claimed by Hodgson to the main topics of evolutionary economics such as diversity and ′natural selection′. It is through labour theory of value that Marx explains the co-evolution of technology and economy
