Game Theory in Marxian Economics


Taí um livro que fiquei curioso para conhecer

Reduction, Rationality and Game Theory in Marxian Economics

Bruce Philp

Nem preciso dizer que o pessoal da quermesse, aqueles que ficam muito felizes em afirmar que leram o volume III do Capital, nunca ouviram falar, tampouco conseguirão ler um livro como esse.

Erik, não sei se a referência ao volume III foi apenas em relação a ter lido todo o livro ou se uma ligação do mesmo com o livro que você sugeriu. De qualquer forma, é uma feliz coincidência, afinal o volume III termina assim:

"The first question to he answered is this: What constitutes a class? — and the reply to this follows naturally from the reply to another question, namely: What makes wage-labourers, capitalists and landlords constitute the three great social classes?

At first glance — the identity of revenues and sources of revenue. There are three great social groups whose members, the individuals forming them, live on wages, profit and ground-rent respectively, on the realisation of their labour-power, their capital, and their landed property.

However, from this standpoint, physicians and officials, e.g., would also constitute two classes, for they belong to two distinct social groups, the members of each of these groups receiving their revenue from one and the same source. The same would also be true of the infinite fragmentation of interest and rank into which the division of social labour splits labourers as well as capitalists and landlords-the latter, e.g., into owners of vineyards, farm owners, owners of forests, mine owners and owners of fisheries."

Sugestivo, não?
