Jerry's commentary on Samuelson's early editions of MICROECONOMICS
re Marx are very accurate. But even an old leopard such as Samuelson
can change his spots, and his most recent textbook--to my amazement
at the time--describes Marx as one of the greatest economic thinkers
of all time, and devotes a section of the book to Marxian economics.

Mind you, I haven't read this carefully--not having to concern
myself with teaching issues at present--but the tenor and the
devotion of space are a far cry from what he offered in his pre-
Cambridge Controversies texts.

I think the relevant edition is No. 7, published in 1993 or 1994.
Worth a look Jerry!
