Jacobin’s Hadas Thier has written a lively, accessible, and timely introduction to Marxist economics for those who want to understand (and overcome) capitalism.

Economists regularly promote capitalism as the greatest system ever to grace the planet. With the same breath, they implore us to leave the job of understanding the magical powers of the market to the “experts.”

Despite the efforts of these mainstream commentators to convince us otherwise, many of us have begun to question why this system has produced such vast inequality and wanton disregard for its own environmental destruction. This book offers answers to exactly these questions on their own terms: in the form of a radical economic theory.

It’s a great read for those new to socialism and longtime organizers alike!
