  Postscript to Marxian Economics
Inasmuch as imperial countries were interpreted as casting colonies in the role of suppliers of low-cost raw materials and foodstuffs, it was possible that the real income of the proletarian class in the imperial countries might actually improve with the resulting reduction in the cost of the components of subsistence.
In the light of this analytical vacuum, it is not altogether surprising that one modern Marxist commentator should describe Marxian economics as the 'economics of capitalism' and capitalist economics as the 'economics of socialism'.
Marxian economic theory provided no obvious justification for this choice, though an independent theoretical rationale for it could be developed - and was by an obscure Soviet economist named Fel'dman - with the aid of Marxian analytical categories.

 MARXIAN ECONOMICS
However, the Marxian school was soon embroiled in a "Revisonist" debate within the ranks - in the humanist challenge issued by Eduard Bernstein against the older materialist interpretation of Marx.
Specifically, Bernstein (1899) challenged the Marxian notion that the economic breakdown of capitalism was "inevitable" and thus if socialism is to exist, it must be a conscious choice, channeled through the political end educational system, rather than a matter of preparing for the "inevitable" revolution.
One of the ablest Marxian theoreticians in Vienna, critic of Kautsky's agrarian policy, and analyzer of the connection between nationalism and class conflict.

 Marxian and post-Keynesian theories of finance and the business cycle Capital & Class - Find Articles
This survey of Marxian writing presents an analysis of the business cycle that involves both real developments, which determine the rate of profit, and financial factors, which have an impact through the availability of credit and the rate of interest.
Since Marx's time, the Marxian theory of the business cycle has generated an enormous body of literature, and this received a fresh impetus in the early 19705, when the lengthy period of relatively sustained accumulation that had begun after the second World War came to an end.
In contrast, the Marxian approach argues that the business cycle is the result of the interaction of real and financial factors, and that while it might be possible to modify or even ameliorate the business cycle, it can never be completely eliminated.

 Marxian Perspectives on Educational Philosophy: From Classical Marxism to Critical Pedagogy by Douglas Kellner
Then, I lay out the way that Marxian perspectives on education were developed in the Frankfurt School critical theory, British cultural studies, and other neo-Marxian and post-Marxian approaches grouped under the label of critical pedagogy, that emerged from the work of Paulo Freire and is now global in scope.
The classical Marxian paradigm thus sees education as functioning within the hegemonic social system which is organized by and serves the interest of capital, while calling for alternative modes of education that would prepare students and citizens for more progressive socialist mode of social organizations.
Subsequent Marxian theorists, however, engaged in a heated debate concerning whether class consciousness developed spontaneously (as Rosa Luxembourg claimed), or would have to be brought to the workers from outside (as Kautsky and Lenin argued).

 The Marxian Class Conflict Doctrine
But it is nonsensical to classify the members of a capitalistic society according to their position in the framework of the social division of labor and then to identify these "classes" with the castes of a status society.
Engels was the son of a wealthy manufacturer and a rich businessman himself; he indulged in the amusements of the British gentry such as riding to hounds in a red coat, and snobbishly refused to marry his mistress because she was of low origin.
The enormous power that the Marxian ideas and the political parties guided by them enjoy in the present is not due to any inherent merits of the doctrine.

 The Marxian Theory of Wage Rates
And it demolishes entirely the main demagogy of the Marxian system, the doctrine, that contends that the recipients of wages and salaries are exploited by the employers.
In the elaboration of his system of philosophy and economics Marx was blinded to such an extent by his passionate hatred of Western civilization that he did not become aware of the blatant contradictions in his own reasoning.
One of the most essential dogmas of the Marxian message, perhaps its very core and substance, is the doctrine of the inevitability of the coming of socialism.

 Marxian economics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Note: "Marxian" is not restricted to "Marxian economics," as it includes those inspired by Marx's works who do not identify with "Marxism" as a political ideology.
Marxian economics refers to a body of economic thought stemming from the work of Karl Marx.
The adherents of Marxian economics, particularly in academia, distinguish it from Marxism as a political ideology, arguing that Marx's approach to understanding the economy is an intellectually valuable one, independent of Marx's advocacy for revolutionary socialism or the inevitability of proletarian revolution.

 Marxian Structural Approach
As opposed to the exclusively individualistic emphasis of the neoclassical economic approach, the Marxian approach emphasizes collectivities such as social classes, the whole society and economy, the structures that compose these, and the dynamic factors associated with these structures.
In contrast to the static neoclassical models, an essential aspect of the Marxian approach is the historical component.
As originally developed, the Marxian economic model is primarily a model of male economic activity.

Then the Marxian labor value v could be defined as the labor necessary to produce one unit of net output.
The Marxian value definition treats the units of labor (or corn) at different times as being the same (so they can be meaningfully added together), and thus the definition implicitly treats the interest rate as being zero.
The modern formulation of the Marxian labor theory of value and exploitation is in fact a just-price theory.

 4. The critique of Marxian reification (1) | libcom.org
The problem immediately arises: what do we mean by 'doctrine' when dealing with a thinker who, as we know, has left his stamp upon such a wide variety of spheres, from philosophy, political science, economics and sociology (seen as the science of the laws of the evolution of society) to utopia.
The entire critique developed by the Marxist 'philosophers' (Lukacs, Korsch, the Frankfurt School, the philosophical tendency of the 1950s and 1960s) is devoted to demonstrating the importance of philosophy in the works of Marx, and the interaction between his Hegelian -- or neo-Hegelian -- ideas and his political, economic and sociological thought.
In this sense, we may say that they managed to shake the Marxist edifice by concentrating the interest of the inquisitive Marxist upon the coherence of the parts as related to the whole and hence upon an analysis of the form of Marxism.

In this continuation of the series on Marxian theory, I will try to explain what is going on and what progressive sociologists may do usefully, in both the study of the labor process and in evaluation of experimental forms of work and labor.
Only capitalism creates a surplus population...surplus to the labor process...this is the first and major form of alienation in marxian theory since, for Marx, labor is the heart and soul of the process by which human beings become human.
Praxis became the unification of theory and techne in marxian social psychology.

 Marxian Economics and the Labour Theory of Value - SPSW
However, the reason why the result was as it was [and yet not as it turned out], was that the Labour Theory of Value seriously skewed the implications of various phenomena.
Yes, Historical Materialism is an underpinning force in Marxian social analysis, and basically states that all concepts and such stem from the economic conditions of society [factors of production, factors of relation].
However, the validity or lack thereof of HM is irrelevant to Marxian economic analysis.

 Political Economy: The Marxian Crises Theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The Marxian crises theory stands thus in blunt contradiction to all bourgeois crises theories and to its varieties -- the Social Democratic theories.
For this reason the Marxian theory of trade cycles is primarily a theory of crises, because its most noteworthy feature is that capitalist production is periodically shaken by crises.
An irrefutable proof of the soundness of the Marxian theory of crises is to be seen in the crisis which broke out over four years ago and is the worst of all the crises known in the whole history of capitalism.

 Marxian Theory of Crime
A Marxian theory of crime locates the principal sources of crime in the ordinary operation of the day to day operations of the political economy of a society as one will observe from the proposition below.
A Marxian approach to crime sets social relations, social practices, social organizations as the unit of theoretical concern.
If one is disemployed as a result of the ordinary operation of an economic system, one is denied a relationship to the means to produce oneself as a human.

 Post-structuralist Marxian Theory and the Study of Economic History
Post-structuralist Marxian theory attempts to rethink the dynamics of social relationships, the interaction of such social relationships with the natural environment, and the logic of cause and effect in producing change.
The journal, Rethinking Marxism, and the organization, The Association for Economic and Social Analysis, are critical institutional vehicles for the teaching and dissemination of post-structuralist Marxian theory.
Indeed, it is the open-mindedness of post-structuralist Marxian theory that makes it particularly attractive to anyone seeking to develop an unbiased understanding of economic history.

 2. The formation of the Marxian project | libcom.org
The formation of the Marxian project Introduction Marx's lifetime was a period of unprecedented social, economic and political change.
From his birth in 1818 to his death in 1883, Europe, if not the world, was transformed out of all recognition by the changes wrought by the industrial revolution and the rapid urbanization that went with it.
A project which had the immediate practical effect of providing him with the critical philosophical grounds from which he was able to fight his political adversaries both inside and outside the early socialist movement and to develop the theoretical basis for communism.

 Marxian Economic Theory
The aim of this course is to develop an understanding of Marxian economic theory, which is often referred to as the Marxian "critique of political economy." This critique is aimed at mainstream economics (both neoclassical and Keynesian) and at the economic and social system celebrated by mainstream economists.
This volume provides the initial steps of Marxian "value theory," the conceptual means in and through which Marx and later Marxists have elaborated both the radical differences of their method from that of mainstream economics and their particular analysis of capitalism.
It is crucial to understand the Marxian critique of political economy, including Marxian value theory, in the context of Marxian theory as a whole—which includes both epistemology and methodology.

 Illuminations: Kellner
The Marxian dialectic sees reality as a process of continual change and is interested in those contradictions and antagonisms that make radical transformation possible.
The reader is forced to think through the opposing positions of the Marxian classics and contemporary Marxian theorists and to evaluate for her or his own self events in the Soviet Union.
It is an irony of history that Marxian theory has proved more valuable that actual Marxian politics, in view of the collapse of the entire Soviet socialist bloc in recent years.

 A Simple "Neoclassical" Model of Marxian Exploitation: An Outline
Despite the obvious fallacies of this kind of model, the point is that if a flower can grow in such sterile soil, the flower must be robust: it adds evidence for the validity of Marx’s theory of exploitation.
It assumes that there is only one stable equilibrium, at high levels of demand (i.e., in the Marxian region).
The Marxian equilibrium requires that accumulation not be unlimited, i.e., be deterred by falling expected profit rates.

 Marxian Economics. - Atari Forums
Our text book is Marx's Capital volume I, not to mention we had to get a book the teacher printed out for us that is over 300 pages that has his personal translation and footnotes to some of the passages in out book.
But I will tell you that the class is very odd, we have a reader that is over 300 pages long of our teacher's interpreting Marx, because Marx isn't someone you can "sit under a tree and read" you have to have someone tell you what it means.
The man is a Marxist Economist, the class name is Marxian Economics, and he teachers other Economics like Micro and Marco (although he teachers them, he starts at the begining of class with "this is all bs anyway, so I don't know why I have to teach it but here it is").

 The Neo-Marxian/Radical School
Joan Robinson (1942) was unimpressed and argued that that Marxian economics should do without the labour theory of value -- a proposition that Oskar Lange (1935) had earlier recommended.
There have been numerous "offshoot" Neo-Marxist schools which have taken on many of the themes and conclusions of the Marxian school, although they should not be considered rigorous applications of classical Marxian theory.
A separate (and unrelated) school is the "Analytical Marxian" school, normally associated with the work of John E. Roemer and John Elster, which attempts to reduce some of the Marxian propositions to conventional, methodological individualism (i.e.

 Society And Mind In Marxian Philosophy - I
The Marxian conception of history puts living man in the center of its scheme of development, with all his needs and all his powers, both physical and mental.
His needs are not only the needs of his stomach (though these are the most imperative), but also the needs of head and heart.
In this way, we may understand their erroneous view of Marxism as a theory dealing exclusively with the material side of life.
