The links below are drafts of my scripts for the upcoming video series “Law of Value”. At the moment there are 11 videos. I may make 2 more, on the why animals and machines don’t create value and a concluding video on “The Challenge of the Law of Value” which will talk about the challenges Marx’s analysis presents for those who seek to change the world.
I am posting these drafts because I would like feedback from viewers. I would like these videos to be a resource to people so it’s important that they make sense, that the answer the sort of questions people want answered, and that they are free of errors. Many viewers gave me a lot of good suggestions about topics they’d like to see covered, points to make, and questions to answer. I hope that some folks might find that time to read through the script of one or two videos and leave comments, questions or suggests. I can’t promise I will use all of them, but they are all welcome.
The production of each video can take some time. In addition to revising all of the scripts I have to find images for 11 different videos! If any viewers know of any great public domain film clips that might work well for a section of a script, or have the ability and time to create some good images (still or moving) that they think might help illustrate a point, I would be grateful for such contributions. I can’t promise I will use everything, but if I think it will work I definitely will.
I hoped to make each video in the series under 10 minutes. Some topics were too big to fit in. Eventually I hope to whittle down the longer scripts, but a few will probably stretch into longer videos. I may break some up into two videos.
