"the political economy of the working class" [of which Marx spoke favourably


Mr. Lebowitz is obviously referring to Marx's Inaugural Address for the International Working Men's Association. In his talk, Marx employs the phrase "the political economy of the working class" just to signify the particular gains of labor, of socialist politics (social production controlled by social foresight), against capital, and its political economy based on the laws of supply and demand. I have no idea if Marx ever mentioned elsewhere "the political economy of labor" as a distinctive theoretical discipline peculiar to working class. I would be appreciated if Mr. Lebowitz conveys us some other instances where Marx elaborates his thoughts on the subject.
