Overview

The system is capitalism, and Yates (associate editor, Monthly Review) doesn't just name it, he roundly condemns it and the neoclassical economists that provide its ideological justifications. Essentially a Marxist primer, though not an unsophisticated one, his text lays out the general workings of today's global capitalist economy, shines a spotlight on inequality it naturally engenders and the conditions of the working classes, critiques the shibboleths of neoclassical economists, and proposes alternate understandings of the capitalists system.
