The co-hosts discuss Andrew’s article, “Karl Marx Systematically Exploited by Ben Burgis: Marx’s Exploitation Theory vs. G. A. Cohen’s ‘Plain Argument.’” Andrew likens Burgis’ “theoretical appropriation” of Marx’s exploitation theory to cultural appropriation. Brendan and Andrew then discuss a variety of topics, including problems with Burgis’ formulation of exploitation in terms of “capitalists’ control of part of the product”; how exploitation differs from injustice and oppression, and why the difference matters; Cohen’s and Burgis’ critiques of Marx’s value theory; and what’s wrong with Cohen’s “Plain Argument” that capitalists exploit workers, why it goes wrong, and why Burgis embraces it.
