Marx argued that if value is a property common to all commodities, then whatever it is derived from, whatever determines it, must be common to all commodities. Alfred Marshall is a well-known promoter of this view.

Ricardo also had what might be described as a cost of production theory of value. Paper money is, in this model, a representation of gold or silver, almost without value of its own but held in circulation by state decree.

Natural prices, according to Petty, Smith, and Ricardo, for example, capture systematic and persistent forces operating at a point in time. In their view, it is only one definite kind of concrete labour—agricultural labour—that creates surplus-value We are reminded how important academic friendships are for maintaining and shaping our interests, as well as questioning our claims.
