An introduction to Volume 2 of the book ‘The Creation of Value by Living Labour: A Normative and Empirical Study’. By Cheng Enfu, Wang Guijin and Zhu Kui, vol. 2. London and Istanbul: Canut Press. 2018.
I was the translating editor for this work by Cheng Enfu, Wang Guijin and Zhu Kui.
This is my introduction to volume 2, which focusses on developments in the labour theory of value, providing both underpinning and research ideas for the empirical and theoretical issues dealt with in Volume 1, dealing with the role of creative, scientific and managerial labour in China’s recent economic development.
