17 June 2017 — Anti-Capital
1. One hundred and fifty years ago, Marx’s Capital (volume 1) was published. Nobody, OK, almost nobody thought it was a big deal.
One hundred years ago, the event voted “least likely to succeed” by the senior class attending the Second International’s Karl Kautsky Gymnasium, occurred. Everybody, everywhere knew the Russian Revolution was a really big deal.
And that’s OK. Marx was first, foremost, last, and always a revolutionist. “Economics” is, in his own word, shit.
