Abstract

"Marx was before all else a revolutionary. His real mission in life," noted Frederick Engels at Marx's graveside, "was to contribute in one way or another to the overthrow of capitalist society and of the forms of government which it had brought into being, to contribute to the liberation of the present-day proletariat." Could the same be said about Marxist economists? That they are revolutionaries whose real mission is to contribute to the overthrow of capitalism?
