First published in 1876, Das Kapital is Karl Marx's most important contribution to the world of political economy. Kapital is a critical analysis of capitalism and its practical economic application and also a critique of other related theories. Today it is considered one of the most influential books ever written. Through Marx's criticisms of the vulnerability of free-market capitalism we can see the inevitability of recent financial turmoil. In this timely interpretation, Steve Shipside uses twenty-first century examples and case studies to re-evaluate Marx's text for the new world of business and economics. Today's reader will discover: * Why bigger business is not necessarily better business; * How to develop a workforce made up of creative individuals; * Why a successful business needs to develop a social conscience; * The best ways to introduce new strategies, systems and technologies to your team; * Why you need to keep your staff fit, healthy and happy. This interpretation of Karl Marx's Das Kapital is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Marx's insights by bringing them to life with contemporary examples. Given the continuing turbulence of the global economy this brilliant interpretation of a classic of political economy couldn't be more timely. Marx's views frequently chime with criticisms of current business practice and gathering anti-globalisation sentiment, making Das Kapital as relevant today as it was 140 years ago.
