Does Marx Matter?
One hundred and fifty years after the publication of Das Kapital – perhaps the most consequential economics book ever written as it was the blueprint for the central ideological struggle of the 20th century – we ask whether Karl Marx is still relevant in the 21st century. Journalist, thinker, philosopher, agitator, economist, and philanderer, Marx divides opinion as his ideas divide societies. Marx is like fashion, sometimes he’s in, sometimes he’s out but he’s never far away. This discussion will illuminate and infuriate in equal measure.
