Is there any individual who is a member of the Syriza Central Committee and not at some time in the past or currently, a professor of political economy?

    I fell for that for a moment. I wish you would write a book, or publish an anthology of your writings.

  2. Apart from 'Capital' are there any other more contemporary critiques of political economy you would recommend? Thanks.

  3. Sure. Read Rosa's Accumulation. And be sure to read Pavel Maksakovsky's The Capitalist Cycle. Avoid anyone and everyone who makes a big deal about "fictitious capital." It is most important to combine these readings with the study of history. Read everything you can get your hands on re the historical development of Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Egypt, Britain, etc.etc.

  4. Thanks a lot. I just started re-reading Connolly's 'Labour in Irish History', simultaneous to my third reading of Capital Vol. 1.
