This week I am delighted to welcome back to the show, the Jazz Pianist, Marxist auto-didact, YouTube star, and the man behind the Kapitalism 101 blog, Brendan Cooney.
I’ve recently just finished reading volume II of Marx’s Das Kapital, and so I’ve invited Brendan on the show to see what he makes of it all.
We discuss Marx’s concept of science, dialectics, Rosa Luxembourg and empire, the role of gold and silver in Marx’s work, and the games people play.
You can check out Brendan’s Blog here:
And his great YouTube videos here:
