Re: 10cc "The reason there's not much of an uproar is because Marxist is an advocate of Marx, and not of the common misconception that the Soviet Union was what Marx advocated. Karl Marx mostly was an economic thinker and social observer, not a revolutionary."

Thanks 10cc for this clarification. We shouldn't have to make it, but I guess we do, as the state of economics education is utterly dismal. I have never believed that in the realm of economic theory Marx is the last word, but he would be at least 30% of the economics discipline if he were let it. Economics is irrelevant because economists for the most part are ignorant of Marx.

Do a search for R.D. Wolff who is a top economist AND a Marxian theoretician.
