112119时,岳麓经贸论坛第三十期讲座在湖南大学北校区行政楼401开讲,本次讲座的主讲嘉宾是纽约市立大学(City University of New York)教授、<Science &Society (SSCI)>主编David Laibman先生,讲座由我院985首席专家、博士生导师柯善咨教授主持,经贸学院院长张亚斌教授、黄建欢副教授等多位老师、留学生、博硕士研究生及本科生160余人均参加了本次讲座。

本次专题讲座以“政治经济学与西方经济学”为主题,由Laibman教授就政治经济学与西方经济学的关系等一系列问题为同学们作了详细的阐述。

讲座期间,Laibman教授用诙谐幽默的话语营造了一个轻松愉悦的氛围。他首先通过经济学研究者们耳熟能详的劳动力供给与需求曲线向大家解释了政治经济学与西方经济学并非水火不容的分离的两个领域。紧接着,教授举例阐明了劳动力作为一种能够思维与行为的特殊生产要素,在经济活动中的复杂作用,即政治经济学劳动价值论的精髓;同时,他还谈到了价值的重要性。然后,教授根据自己几十年的研究成果,提出了一个崭新的命题——西方经济学能够被纳入政治经济学的体系中,反之却不成立,且两者的关系并非相互融合。最后,Laibman教授耐心的解释了老师同学们提出的问题。

针对关于政治经济学能否透过市场解释表象下更深层次规律的提问,教授经过认真的思索后,慎重的给出了肯定的答复。他认为市场应当只是表面现象,虽然西方经济学对市场进行了系统而清晰的描述,然而隐藏在其背后的深刻规律,有待政治经济学以独到的视角与方式加以解决。面对来自我院留学生具有地域色彩的“非洲钻石等矿藏国有化”提问,教授坦诚自己并不是很了解非洲,但却通过推荐其他专家及专著的方式为大家提供了思路。柯教授对政治经济学目前较边缘化的地位表示关心,也收到了目前美国的大学中,各经济学流派和平共处、共同进步的满意答复。同时,Laibman教授也耐心解释了马克思主义内涵及其社会主义和共产主义等命题的延伸。

最后,作为讲座主持人的柯教授做了总结发言,并代表院领导对Laibman教授的到访及授课表示衷心的感谢!此次专题讲座在师生们热烈的掌声中圆满结束!
