You've got a point here, but did you ever read Mein Kampf? Old Adolph
didn't much like finance capital either. Proudhon, American populists, and
Hitler all thought it quite easy to separate "finance" from "industry"
(while lots of neoclassical and orthodox Marxian economists treat finance
and money as epiphenomenal, a sideshow to the real action in the "real"
sector). It's not that easy. They're partly separable, but not easily. The
two spheres are related in complex and profound ways that are difficult to
transform into agitprop.
