I don’t think we’ll have time to discuss this in class (we never got to it in block 2 today), so I’ll throw it out here on the blog.
Last year Mitt Romney made $20 million without working. For Marx, this makes him the very definition of an exploitative capitalist, someone living off the work of others. Is Marx correct that Romney is exploiting workers? Why or why not? Post your responses in the comments.
Or, for a comic version of the issue, check out this Dilbert cartoon.
