Marx’s Concept of Intrinsic Value
On the unity of value, fetishism, and the analysis of capitalist production in Capital

by Andrew Kliman

“[A]n intrinsic value, i.e. an exchange-value that is inseparably connected with the commodity, inherent in it, seems a contradiction in terms. Let us consider the matter more closely.” – Karl Marx, Capital

From the Preface:
“In confronting capital’s global expansionism, the movement [against global capitalism] would do well to seriously study Marx’s analysis of ‘self-expanding value’ (his definition of capital).”
