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 Left—Prabhat Patnaik and John Roemer--respond to these questions and their relevance to the global political economy today.

This event is made possible through the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
