Subject: [Marxism] article by Petras on capitalism versus
This is a good piece by Petras. I will send it to my comrades at Monthly
Review. A long time ago, I taught a college course in comparative economic
systems. I can't remember the name of this little book I used, but it had
many statistical comparisons between the socialist and capitalist economies.
Over a wide range of standard economic measures, there wasn't a whole lot of
difference (and there was far greater equality in the socialist economies).
Of course, today the whole history has been rewritten, more or less, to
conform to the views of the anti-communists.
