    One thought on “A History of Marxian Economics, Volume II: 1929-1990”

    1. Great Synopsis of different economic thinkers in the Marxist vein. Recommend for anyone who wants to go "past" Capital and get a grasp on some of the finer details of Labor value theory, ideas on Imperialism and it's economic foundations, and the ideas of socialist development in industry and agriculture.
