Abstract

Economic crisis as inherent in capitalism is an abiding preoccupation of all of Marx’s adult life though, as in some other fields of his critique of political economy, Marx did not leave a “finished” work on the subject.1 A most vivid early account of crisis appears in the Communist Manifesto (1848) in connection with the discussion of the growing revolt of the productive forces of capitalism against its production relations.
