Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

Jan 20, 2020

New mini-squared series, who dis?

Comrade Adam and Comrade Commissar Don dive into Ernest Mandel's concise book/pamphlet on the basics of Marxist economic theory, An Introduction to Marxist Economic Thought
In part 1, we cover some of the basic Marxist concepts such as use value and exchange value, surplus value, the labor theory of value, alienation, and explore Mandel's three proofs for the labor theory of value. We end talking about Stalin, The Expanse, and trying to logically prove the existence of God using arguments from the Middle Ages. 
***C.C. Don's mic had some technical issues between about 33 minutes and 49 minutes but it was salvageable***
