What is the value of technology? Toward a labour theory of technology change
Barzey, Anthony (2008) What is the value of technology? Toward a labour theory of technology change. International Journal of Technology, Knowledge and Society, 4 (2). pp. 197-204. ISSN 1832-3669Full text not available from this repository.
Economic analysis of technology treats it as given exogenously, while determined endogenously. This paper examines the conceptual conflict. The paper outlines an alternative conceptual framework. This uses a 'General Vertical Division of Labour' into conceptual and executive parts to facilitate a coherent political economic explanation of technological change. The paper suggests that we may acquire rather than impose an understanding of technological change. It also suggests that we may re-define and reassess the efficiency of technological change, through the values inculcated into it.
