About this book


The purpose of this book is to provide an elementary account of Sraffa's Production of Commodities by means of Commodities. Operating with a two-sector model in order to minimise the mathematical demands on the reader, the author is nonetheless able to analyse all the essential questions arising from Sraffa's book-prices of production, choice of technique, fixed capital, land and joint production - as well as discuss micro- and macro-economic implications of this theory.
