    Story
    (31)

    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.

    Jeff says: "Should Rename As Das Kapital Cliffnotes Unabridged"
    "Not Das Kapital unabridged"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A died in the wool, committed capitalist would like this book very much as it presents the capitalist perception of the ideas of Karl Marx.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Ramsay Steele again?

    probably not.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    the narator was fine. i would listen to other works read by him.


    What character would you cut from Karl Marx?

    i would cut Mr. Steele and let Karl's Ideas stand or fall on their own merit.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should have been marketed as A Capitalist's View of Karl Marx's Das Kapital. I believed it to be a translation from the German. I was interested in the Ideas of Marx, not Mr. Steele's opinions.
