One of the most notorious works of modern times, as well as one of the most influential, Capital is an incisive critique of private property and the social relations it generates. Living in exile in England, where this work was largely written, Marx drew on a wide-ranging knowledge of its society to support his analysis and generate fresh insights. Arguing that capitalism would create an ever-increasing division in wealth and welfare, he predicted its abolition and replacement by a system with common ownership of the means of production. Capital rapidly acquired readership among the leaders of social democratic parties, particularly in Russia and Germany, and ultimately throughout the world, to become a work described by Marx's friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels as 'the Bible of the Working Class'

THE TWO FACTORS OF A COMMODITY: USE-VALUE AND VALUE (THE SUBSTANCE OF VALUE AND THE MAGNITUDE OF VALUE). THE wealth of those societies in which the capitalist mode of production prevails, presents itself as "an immense accumulation of commodities,"10 its unit being a single commodity. Our investigation must therefore begin with the analysis of a commodity. A commodity is, in the first place, an object outside us, a thing that by its properties satisfies human wants of some sort or another. The nature of such wants, whether, for instance, they spring from the stomach or from fancy, makes no difference. 11 Neither are we here concerned to know how the object satisfies these wants, whether directly as means of subsistence, or indirectly as means of production. Every useful thing, as iron, paper, 8c., may be looked at from the two points of view of quality and quantity. It is an assemblage of many properties, and may therefore be of use in various ways. To discover the various use of things is the work of history.12 So also is the establishment of socially-recognised standards of measure for the quantities of these useful objects. The diversity of these measures has its origin partly in the diverse nature of the objects to be measured, partly in convention. The utility of a thing makes it a use-value.13 But this utility is not a thing of air. Being limited by the physical properties of the commodity, it has no existence apart from that commodity. A commodity, such as iron, corn, or a diamond, is therefore, so far as it is a material thing, a use-value, something useful. This property of a commodity is independent of the amount of labour required to appropriate its useful qualities. When treating of use-value, we always assume to be dealing with definite quantities, such as dozens of watches, yards of linen, or tons of iron. The use-values of commodities furnish the material for a special study, that of the commercial knowledge of commodities.14 Use-values become a reality only by use or consumption: they also constitute the substance of all wealth, whatever may be the social form of that wealth. In the form of society we are about to consider, they are, in addition, the material depositories of exchange value.

Die Macht über die Produktion des Geldes liegt in der Hand von Geschäfts- oder Privatbanken. Ann Pettifor, eine der führenden Ökonom_innen, erklärt, wie Geld und Kredit in modernen Gesellschaften geschaffen werden und welche politischen und sozialen Konsequenzen der Finanzmarkt-Kapitalismus für Mensch und Ökosystem hat. Der Finanzsektor verzerrt und dominiert die Realwirtschaft. Bezahlbare Finanzierungen werden vorenthalten, das Geld stattdessen für Spekulationen und Risikogeschäfte verwendet. Investitionen, die nachhaltig Arbeitsplätze, Löhne und Gewinne schaffen, werden nur noch marginal getätigt, denn: Geld wird mit Geld verdient. Der Finanzsektor ist außer Kontrolle, es ist dringend geboten, dass Demokratien die Kontrolle über die Geldproduktion zurückgewinnen und den Finanzsektor einhegen. Nur dann wird die Finanzbranche wieder im Sinne der Gesellschaft und des Ökosystems agieren.
