"This book is intended as an introduction to Marxian economic theory in which Marxism is defined and developed in relation to neoclassical economics… Resnick and Wolff make an important contribution in urging students of economics to consider the social consequences of alternative economic theories." — Journal of Economic Literature
Wolff and Resnick provide a unique, balanced explication of the differing assumptions, logical structures, and arguments of neoclassical and Marxian economics. They address broader aspects of evaluating or choosing between alternative theories, but their conclusions are nonpolemical. Throughout, math is used simply and sparingly.
