Theses on the warfare state: How Marx’s value theory explains the facts, and why it is ignored
This presentation, to a seminar on Marx’s Capital organised by the liberation school, offers new data on the long-run fall in the rate of profit in Europe and the USA, confirming Marx’s explanation of this phenomenon.
