Surely the issue on workers learning accounting is the amount of
information they have. Surely the more information they have the better.
Yes accounting categories are misleading at times. But to oppose
accounting on that ground is short sighted. The bigger issue is creating
an educated working class which can challenge the capitalists and not be
baffled by the B.S. from hired capitalist lackeys.
