A workshop on ‘The Labour Theory of Value in the Digital Age’ was held at the Open University of Israel, in the city of Ra’anana, 20km north of Tel Aviv on June 15-17, 2014.
This workshop gathered scholars interested in how Marx’s labour theory of value applies to value creation in digital environments, and how transformations in production and labour shed new light on this theory.
