What about Marx? [More...]
Daniel Little examines a number of key theoretical frameworks that Marx advocated that still successfully challenge economic liberalism or capitalism. "Power, exploitation, class, structures of production and distribution, property relations, workplace hierarchy -- these features certainly continue to be an important part of our social world." He concludes that there is much still of value, if you avoid the dogmatism of earlier Marxists.
