10 Classical Liberalism and the Austrian School direction. 17 There appear to be affinities between a macroeconomic approach and anti-liberal policies. Hayek, for example, wrote, of the heightened interest in macroeconomic statistics associated with the Keynesian revolution: It was largely a growing demand for greater deliberate control of the economic process (which required more knowledge of the specific effects to be expected from particular measures) that led to the endeavor to use the obtainable statistical information as the foundation of such predictions.

Classical Liberalism and the Austrian School 29 supported their view with references to the Mill-Ricardian labor theory of value. ”38 The story, however, ends happily from Fetter’s point of view. The subjective-value theory left Marxism in the dust: “it would be difficult to find in the whole history of economic thought a more complete victory of one idea over another” (1923: 600–02, 605; on Fetter, see Herbener 1999). From the opposing camp, a long line of socialist critics, from the 1890s on, pilloried marginalism as a mere rationalization for the exploitative capitalist system.

Frank A. Fetter was another scholar who saw the emergence of marginalism as a deliverance from an ideological impasse. Fetter elaborated on the predicament of classical economics after the middle of the nineteenth century. Of Ricardo and his labor theory of value, he stated: with his sophistical arguments he had given to this really primitive conception the phenomenal authority of his name, and it was to go on exerting a tremendous and evil influence in ways then all unforeseen. Labor is the source of value (exchange value, virtually market price as he used it); labor is the cause of value; labor produces all wealth.
