Paul M. Sweezy
AbstractDescribed by the Wall Street Journal as "the 'dean' of radical economics," Paul Sweezy has more than any other single person kept Marxist economics alive in North America. One work would be sufficient to have achieved this—The Theory of Capitalist Development (first published in 1942). During the period of the 1950s and 1960s, this was the book to which one turned to learn about Marxist economics.
