It remains important for us to understand the underlying causes within this late stage of capitalist development that led to the 2008 crisis, and how the international community of capitalist interests regrouped so that we of the working classes develop our capacity to effectively take on the political, ideological and economic challenges we are facing now and in the struggles ahead for a better life for all. McNally’s Global Slump is an impressive attempt to provide such a Marxist understanding for the crisis and a good example to see the explanatory power of Marx's social theory as laid out in the three volumes of Capital.

As Engels stated at the grave of Marx in 1883:

“…Marx was before all else a revolutionist. His real mission in life was to contribute, in one way or another, to the overthrow of capitalist society and of the state institutions which it had brought into being, to contribute to the liberation of the modern proletariat, which he was the first to make conscious of its own position and its needs, conscious of the conditions of its emancipation. Fighting was his element. ”
Join us this May as we read early political and historical works up to the 1848 revolutionary wave.
