Mit einem Vorwort von Klaus Bittermann

Gab es vor dem Fall der Mauer 60 Millionen Opfer, so hat sich deren Zahl nun um 17 Millionen Insassen einer Einrichtung erhöht, die nicht nur der Kanzler schon vor 1989 als Konzentrationslager bezeichnet hatte."
"Scharfsinnige, sprachlich brillante Essays."
[Quelle: Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung]
"Eike Geisel hat in seinen Artikeln stets den moralischen Analphabetismus ins Visier genommen, den staatsoffiziellen ebenso wie den der linksalternativen Gutmenschen."

Conventional theories of capitalism are mired in a deep hindrance: after centuries of discussion, they're nonetheless not able to inform us what capital is. Liberals and Marxists either think about capital as an ‘economic’ entity that they count number in common devices of ‘utils’ or ‘abstract labour’, respectively. yet those devices are absolutely fictitious. no one has ever been in a position to detect or degree them, and for an excellent cause: they don’t exist. considering that liberalism and Marxism rely on those non-existing devices, their theories dangle in suspension. they can't clarify the method that concerns such a lot – the buildup of capital.
This ebook bargains an intensive replacement. in keeping with the authors, capital isn't a slender monetary entity, yet a symbolic quantification of energy. It has little to do with application or summary labour, and it extends some distance past machines and creation strains. Capital, the authors declare, represents the equipped energy of dominant capital teams to reshape – or creorder – their society.
Written in easy language, available to put readers and specialists alike, the booklet develops a singular political economic system.

The “Fundamental Marxian Theorem” was once lengthy inspiration to have proven that orthodox Marxian economics succeeds in replicating Marx’s end. the controversy starts off with Andrew Kliman’s disproof of that declare.
On one part of the controversy, representing orthodox Marxian economics, are contributions by means of Simon Mohun and Roberto Veneziani. even though they concede that their simultaneist types can't reflect Marx’s idea of revenue in all situations, they insist that this is often pretty much as good because it will get. at the different facet, representing the temporal single-system interpretation of Marx’s concept (TSSI), are contributions via Kliman and Alan Freeman. They argue that his idea is logically legitimate, because it can certainly be replicated while it really is understood in response to the TSSI.
While the talk in the beginning fascinated about logical matters, problems with pluralism, fact, and scientificity more and more assumed middle degree.
