Capital was Marx’s seminal work outlining his “critique of political economy.” It is indispensable reading for radicals and revolutionaries who want to understand the system under which we live and struggle. But at 940 pages, it can seem daunting. Though tackling its first chapters isn’t easy, the clarity, breadth, vigor, and humor of Marx’s text quickly become clear, as anyone who has read it can attest. This talk will offer a basic introduction to Marx’s Capital, making it accessible for the beginner, and make a case for why all radicals, progressives, and union activists should pick it up and give it a read.
