    Raya Dunaveskaya, a Marxist-Humanist who was Trotsky's Russian-language secretary in Mexico in 1937, broke with the Trotskyists thereafter based on her economic analysis of the U.S.S.R. in 1940-43 as being a state-capitalist economy.

    Dunaveskaya's archives contain an interesting series of articles from 1948 on Stalin's move to re-vise the teaching of Marx's "Capital".  You can read them here.

    •  I know of Dunyevskaya ... the Trotskyists (0+ / 0-)

      were holding the distorted form of socialism argument at the time weren't they? I didn't know about the campaign to eliminate the Law of Value, that is very interesting. Will hotlist the diary so that I can pull up the link when I have more time, thanks Justina. Perhaps I can write something (I was trying to get a friend on site that is really an expert on this to write it); certainly I have studied that chapter and learned it from one of the great fundamentalist marxist economists, Anwar Shaikh. I can do it for the ACM or ACC, which do you think would be more appropriate? If we do it ACM more people will be here for a discussion, if I do it ACC, I do not waste a space that could be used for a discussion that would be important. The ACM was to be for less urgent work that people could discuss; I could do it for one of my diary spaces or do it in the New Year.

        I'm not sure everyone who is reading this post knows that we have two "anti-capitalist" forums.  This is the "Meet-UP" (otherwise known as ACM) which is posted on Sundays.  Articles can be posted on the "Anti-Capitalist Chat"(ACC) at any time during the week.  

        If you've missed seeing the "Anti-Capitalist Chat" please feel free to join us there too.

        NY brit expat, might be good to post the "law of value" article on the chat.  Actually, I agree with TPau that we need to have some basic Marx materials available for folks to read.  Maybe we could post them on the Chat and then reference them in Sunday's Meet-Up postings for people who are interested in gaining more background information.
