The Unmaking of Marx's Capital: Heinrich's Attempt to Eliminate Marx's Crisis Theory
Michael Heinrich’s recent Monthly Review article claims that the law of the tendential fall in the rate of profit (LTFRP) was not proved by Marx and cannot be proved. Heinrich also argues that Marx had doubts about the law and that, for this and other reasons, his theory of capitalist economic crisis was only provisional and more or less in continual flux.
Ravi Bali has published a VERY impressive review essay on Reclaiming Marx's "Capital" and The Failure of Capitalist Production (my books) at A World to Win.
A Marx for our times: Ravi Bali reviews the work of Andrew Kliman, which shows how Marx’s theories have real meaning for today.
