    In his monumental work, Das Kapital, Karl Marx (1818-1883) tried to show that capitalism was both inefficient and immoral. His key to explaining capitalism is his labor theory of value, which he developed from ideas of Adam Smith and David Ricardo.

    "good background information"
    Overall

    I enjoyed hearing something about the time and the background of the creation of "Das Kapital". I'm not sure how representative the snippets from "Das Kapital" are, but it made me want to know at least a little more. Given that this book has been very controversial and influential over the years. What I thought was a little annoying was the accent (or pretended accent) when reading 3rd party commentaries and excerpts from the book. But this audio book provides a good background to understand better the impact of "Das Kapital" on the time and the history of the social democratic parties in Europe.
