Is there a better way to honor the working-class struggle than to study Karl Marx’s “Capital” on Labor Day? How about reading along with distinguished City University of New York professor David Harvey, who after almost 40 years is still teaching the book?

“Capital” is a significant part of Marx’s lifelong attempt to understand what occurs in capitalist societies through a careful analysis of empirical evidence. He sought to give scientific ammunition to capitalism’s critics, and his description remains every bit as crucial today as when it was first published in 1867, when capitalism’s birth pangs were still being felt around the world.
