Marx is back in fashion

Karl Marx
कई दशकों की अवहेलना के बाद कार्ल मार्क्स की किताबें एक बार फिर लोकप्रिय हैं और उनकी बिक्री में तेज़ी आई है.

That's how today's London Times newspaper puts it, parodying the workers' rallying call that opens Marx's 'Communist Manifesto'.

And there may be something in it, because according to German booksellers, Marx's seminal works are suddenly in demand again after a lull of many decades.

Visitors to Marx's German birthplace of Trier have soared this year to forty thousand; the curator of the town's museum of Marxism is quoted as saying he's lost count how many visitors he's heard mutter that Marx was right all along.

Free market critics of Marxism, of course, have long argued that socialism leads to poor quality goods, authoritarianism, the gulags and the rest; but for now, certainly as long as the credit crunch lasts, the pro-lending expansionists are likely to stay under as dark a cloud as their Marxist rivals.
