Sean and Jamie are excited to be joined by Michael Heinrich, German scholar and author of a series of books popularizing and clarifying Marx's value theory and contextualizing the life and times of old Karl. We discuss the core of Marx's project, what distinguished him from the economists of his day, and what political orientations might follow from a precise understanding of his critique of political economy. Importantly, Michael has a powerful critique of vulgar Marxism and the orthodoxies of the 19th and 20th centuries. Nerds, you're not going to want to miss this one!
Stick around for an excellent bonus episode by becoming a patron at patreon.com/theantifada for this, access to our Discord server and more!
