Thanks to all who attended our re-launch meeting with Ben Fine (apologies for those who had to sit on the floor and stand by the door!). There is an mp3 of the meeting (http://rapidshare.com/files/293932707/Ben_Fine_13Oct2009.mp3) for download along with older sessions on the blog. It’s a big file, but worth the wait!

We hope that everyone found the meeting interesting and will consider reading Capital with us. Details of our first meeting are below:

’Commodities & Values’

The wealth of societies in which the capitalist mode of production prevails appears as an ‘immense collection of commodities’.

Marx begins Capital by looking at the elementary building block of capitalism, the commodity.

Marx identifies in the commodity a dual aspect, use-value and exchange value. One gives the commodity its usefulness for the consumer, the other commensurability with other commodities.
