A General Theory of Exploitation and Class is a 1982 book by economist and political scientist John Roemer.
Roemer reconstructs theories of exploitation and class. Roemer employs rational choice and game theory in order to demonstrate how exploitation and class relations may arise in the development of a market for labour.
According to political theorist Terrell Carver, A General Theory of Exploitation and Class is the classic reconstruction of theories of exploitation and class within Analytical Marxism. Philosopher Jonathan Wolff writes that it forms part of a body of work on exploitation that has been highly influential.
