[Marxism] What is the Purpose of Marx's Value Theory?

The fetishism of commodities helps us understand the economic 
determination of many social horrors. It is hardly the sole purpose of 
value theory.

For people who want to make the world a better place, one purpose of 
value theory is scientific. We want to understand the motion and 
development of capitalist economy; understand what is happening now that 
did not happen before, and why; and understand what our program must be 
if indeed we are to make the world a better place. Not our emotional 
wish; our program.

As the discussion on crises a few week ago showed, Heinrich and his 
current cheerleader here are simply not interested in science.

No rich, no poor.
