Explaining Materialism : Thermodynamics of Money and Capital by Paul Cockshott



Political Economy Research says when you apply militant materialism to political economy you get the exposure of Market Socialism - the Modern Economic Revisionism.

Democracy and Class Struggle published our Study of Marxism Against Market Socialism in 2010 and finds our main theoretical arguments validated by this study of Paul Cockshott.

The reconstruction of revolutionary communism in our view Marxism Leninism Maoism will be based on militant materialism and materialist political economy in the 21st Century.

The Future of Global Capitalism with David Harvey



Political Economy Research always found David Harvey OK for an introduction to Marxist Economic Thought - but now in view of his recent views on the Labour Theory of Value which are nothing more than a backdoor to the market and the Question of Imperialism - he seems to have abandoned Imperialism as a concept we think he has reached his Kautsky point where either you go beyond David Harvey or you go backwards.

For a refutation on David Harvey's recent garbage on the Labour Theory of Value read Paul Cockshott here:

Economist Breaks Down Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency w/Richard Wolff

Artificial Intelligence and the Planned Economy - The Future for Socialism ?



Artificial Intelligence and Socialism can be a dead end if it takes us back to Oskar Lange and economic cybernetics - his bringing the market back into socialism proved a technocratic disaster in 20th century.

Building a socialism that goes beyond the market - the type of socialism that Paul Cockshott writes about is the 21st century road to a non market socialism - that is where the future lies.

It also is a realization of the last two hundred years of struggle between a market socialism and a true collective socialism.





Rana Foroohar believes in a reformist capitalism but her work provides much ammunition for a revolutionary transformation of capitalism into socialism.

Understanding Contemporary Capitalism even within its recent cycles is important - preparing for the next crash is a political imperative.
