Paperback – 548 pages

An excellent book for beginners as well as those who have done considerable studies in political economy. It not only covers basic Marist theory but does so by applying it to current issues – class struggle, wages, exploitation, surplus value, women workers, poverty, unemployment, rate of profit, monopoly, wars, super profits of armament companies, interest rates, rate of profit, economic crises and business cycle, imperialism, and much more. The final chapter is on socialism versus capitalism. The examples given are for the US but they are just as relevant for readers in Australia or any other capitalist country. It is clearly written in everyday language and very accessible for readers.
