Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

A value-theoretic approach to economic dynamics and evolution—synthesizing different Marxian modules in a simulation model Part II
Review of Evolutionary Political Economy, 2020
This part is devoted to simulation experiments based on the simulation model developed in part I from the value-theoretic reconstruction of the main parts of Marx’s critique of Political Economy. After introducing the main parameters and the range of their variation (Section 1), a singular run as well as a sensitivity analysis for the chosen standard configuration (‘moderation regime’) is presented in Section 2. This is accomplished by configurations depicting characteristics of the capitalist development emphasized by Marx, i.e. the social conflict regime (Section 3) and the crisis regime (Section 4). Finally, an assessment of the simulation results (Section 4 ) is given, and conclusions as well as research requirements are discussed (Section 5).
Comment from our editors:
This paper allows for looking at the effects of changes in central Marxian categories, based on a reconstruction of Marxian value theory in a prior paper (https://www.exploring-economics.org/en/discover/a-value-theoretic-approach-to-economic-dynamics/)
