Why read Marx's Capital today?

A book launch with Joseph Choonara, author of Unravelling Capitalism: A Guide to Marxist Political Economy
Karl Marx was the greatest critic of capitalism. Yet his ideas are widely dismissed or misunderstood. But Marx is indispensable for anyone who wants to grasp why capitalism is a system of exploitation, instability and repeated crises.
Joseph Choonara introduces Marx’s approach to understanding capitalism—developed above all in the three volumes of Capital. He also outlines how this can be applied to capitalism as it has developed since Marx’s time.
