from one of my favourite new discoveries : AnandBhatt's wiki.

Interesting how Marx thinks, initially blaming poverty on the lack of markets and ultimately bad roads, before then considering the mal effects of British capital on the nation. Although he seems to be predicting more industrialization than happened.

Philosopher Karl Marx made some uncanny predictions, describing the modern capitalist world in global terms, in his 1848 Communist Manifesto. This article highlights a debate about Marx and his thoughts on globalization, between Marxist historian EricHobsbawm and author and economist JacquesAttali.
