One of the mysteries of modern times is the failure of economics to produce theories that really work. In fact the subject tries to mimic physics but never comes close.
This book and others might help to explain why our new left platform tries to avoid theories.
And that goes for the left also: Marx’s theories of history fail and this book shows how the labor theory of value is an endless muddle.
Our Red Forty-eight Group, as noted already, and again today with post on Zizek, doesn’t have any of these problems because it is not a marxist cult.
