The launch of a new group reading "A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy" by Karl Marx, published in 1859. Fortnightly meetings starting on 28 February at 7 pm - the next meeting is on 14 March at 7 pm for which we are reading "Chapter 1 - The Commodity" (upto and including Note a)). This is the work which later evolved into Part I of the first volume of Capital and Marx's method of analysis and synthesis, as well as his excitement at finally getting out of his study, is perhaps more evident here, only two years after the Grundrisse, than in Capital another 8 years later (and older). It makes a perfect Introduction to the first volume of Capital in many ways, dealing as it does with the forms in which capital appears - commodities and money.
