In Favor of Rigor and Relevance. A Reply to Mark Blaug

Heinz Kurz () and Neri Salvadori ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper discusses Mark Blaug’s recent criticisms of “Sraffian economics”. It is shown that none of the criticisms stand up to close examination. Blaug commits a number of elementary blunders and mistakes the mathematical form of an argument for its content. He variously contradicts himself and puts forward bold contentions that cannot be sustained. The paper concludes with an obvious plea for rigor and relevance.
