Japanese Marxist Hayashi Hiroyoshi introduces the fundamental concepts of Marx's economic theory, particularly the "labor theory of value" presented at the beginning of Capital.

Book Description

Karl Marx's ideas have been declared "dead" on more than one occasion, only to emerge with new relevance a few years later. But the "collapse of communism" seemed to be the final nail in his coffin. The end of history had been reached, we were told, and poor old Karl was wrong. - Or was he?

In Marx's Labor Theory of Value: A Defense, Hayashi Hiroyoshi argues that Marx will continue to be relevant as long as capitalism continues to exist. This is simply because no one grasped the nature of capitalism on a more profound level than Marx did. Hayashi presents the most fundamental aspects of Marxist economic thought, centering on the discussion of the commodity at the beginning of Capital. Also included are detailed examinations of Adam Smith's theory of value and the concepts of ground - rent, credit, and productive labor. Hayashi shows that Marx's labor theory of value is the key not only to understanding capitalism but also for grasping the essential characteristics of socialism. And socialism - as the real solution to the contradictions of capitalism - turns out to have little in common with the recently deceased "communist" states.

Now that history has resumed - after its brief "hiatus" - it's time to return to Marx!

We have finally published our first book in English! Now our theory of state capitalism is available in English to socialists throughout the world. This book exposes the pseudo "socialism" of the Soviet Union and China that was mistaken for the real thing for so long. This book represents an important theoretical pillar for the struggle for real socialism.

Welcome to the MCG Web Site!
At our party congress that was held on November 2 and 3, 2002, we dissolved the SWP and made the decision to create a new organization in order to move forward new struggles. At the congress, reviewing the past ten years of our activities, we recognized our inability to carry out activities as a party, and that despite our hopes and desires, the subjective-as well as objective-conditions necessary to fight as a party in the near future are lacking. We therefore decided to move forward as a revolutionary Marxist circle (Marxist Comrades Group). This is painful "one step forward, two steps back." But, frankly summing up the present situation, we came to the conclusion that a more fundamental struggle is necessary. We thank everyone who has supported our struggles over the past 18 years, and encourage you to join together with us in our future struggles.

[The Marxist Comrades Group will not have a program, but the program of the SWP will be preserved as a "deference source".]
