So I've had the flu and have been reading the FT to pass the time...

It has been pointed out to me by some Anonymous commenter that the quote below would appear to be fictitious .The following comment was posted:-

That supposed Marx quote is a hoax that has been repeatedly debunked. See:
The Atlantic http://meganmcardle.theatlantic.com/archives/2009/01/faux_marx.php
International Herald Tribune

You will appreciate that this quote was published on the belief that it was true...furthermore...it was published to give me the platform to link the 3 photos...

Apologies!! I apparently got it wrong!!Lordy lordy...I'm fallible...I havn't read the collected works of every body who was ever alive!!

BTW...to the Anonymous commenter...please feel free to criticise my work but if I'm happy to apologise...then at least have the balls to say who you are

Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable.
The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalised, and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism.

Karl Marx, Das Kapital, 1867
