You've missed so many good articles and books off this list.

Check out Richard Brenner's The Credit Crunch: A Marxist Analysis

I know I have missed out lots of stuff - but I haven't included books and print articles - I was just adding stuff for people to read online.

But if one was talking about books etc - surely Robert Brenner's 'The Boom and the Bubble: The US in the World Economy' would be a more logical place to start than a pamphlet by Richard Brenner?
