Link of the Day: Dec 13 2012: Two American unionists, Ann Robertson and Bill Leumer, write illuminatingly about Marxism in the current context in an article entitled “When Mainstream Economists Discover Karl Marx, Paul Krugman Discovers Marx (and Misses the Point)”,published online in the Information Clearing House, in the process delivering a call to unionists to take to the streets in protest against current government policies. Their message applies to Canada, as to the United States. The economics of Karl Marx were also the subject of a recent photo essay on the BBC in a serie, called Masters of Money (which included essays on Hayek and Keynes), that could no doubt be accessed on the BBC website.
