4.0 out of 5 stars Quite amazing, if a little bit difficult.
In this book Marx describes many facets of economics, money, and capital and capitalism. Certain parts very well describe and explain the anatomy of the credit crunch - an amazing 150 years after writing the book and it is still accurate. He based his ideas on a thorough study of the economic credit crisis of 1857-8.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why Marx cannot rest in Highgate
Did Marx simply set "Hegel on his head" or did his mature dialectic truly address his youthful thesis: " all mysteries that lead to mysticism find their solution in material practice and the rational comprehension thereof".

Grundrisse is actually Marx's rough note books, written as research for Das Capital, never intended for publication.
So is not polished in its form, and it is best to read various sections seperately, and best if you have a guide to find the most relevant sections.
I do like his tone though. In one bit, after having disproved some professor who is denying the tendency of the rate of profit to fall,he simply writes, "This rubbish is herewith disposed of".
A mighty mind at work.

Marx is not dead: substitute Korea for Manchester. The Grundrisse reads like intellectual tit-bits: it infuriates and engrosses in equal measure.
At heart it is still a philosophical anthropology
and it's humanism remains long after it's economism has been (posthumously) demoished.
Recommended for anyone living in America.
