HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Today is the bicentennial of the birth of Karl Marx.  His hauptwerk remains the most penetrating and powerful critique of capitalism ever written.  I have had my say about him in two books, half a dozen articles, and seven videotaped lectures, so I shall content myself with lighting a birthday candle in his honor.  In June, when I am in Paris, I shall travel up to Brussels to give a lecture in his honor.  No one in the United States has asked me to do that.

Thanks for the link. It is just about right. Old Karl was pretty smart.
