Marx Lives On

I confess my ignorance in the post below. There are volumes written about Marxian Economics, as a look at the bibliography on this website shows. The History of Economic Thought website also has a wealth of information, with links.

At risk of beating a subject to death, take a look at the comments to Jane Galt's post on Idiotarian Economics, following an article on the subject by Arnold Kling. Among other things, there is a long discussion of Marxian economic theory, with good comments by Daniel Davies, among others.

Karl Marx may have been wrong about most things, but his contribution to economic thought is considerable, and debates about what he meant (there is still no concensus) and what that means, will, no doubt, continue.
