Marx's Labour Theory of Value is Superior to Subjective Value Theory

Vantrigar
Concade

My argument in this debate will be that Marx's labour theory of value, as outlined in Capital and elsewhere, is the only valid theory of value, and in particular that it is superior to the theories currently being touted by contemporary advocates (Mises institute, LearnLiberty etc) of the subjective value theory proposed by the Austrian school.
