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.

Why did David Ramsay Steele disappoint me?
I'd like to start by saying that I loved the detail and the inclusion of many other great thinkers
When i bought this book though, i was trying to learn more about what Marx had to say, I just wish Steele would have kept it as objective as possible
