As the gap between rich and poor continues to widen, a new generation is
reflecting on the insights of Karl Marx. Marx not only stood against
the global economic system but he also helped us understand it. He
explained how wealth was created on the backs of workers, how "surplus
value" is realized and how accumulation is achieved through unpaid
labour-time, the intensification of work and the tyranny of credit.
"Capital - In Manga!" is the English translation of the Japanese
bestseller. It's a story of a cheese-maker turned capitalist and how
greed, exploitation and its social consequences destroys lives and
remakes workers into commodities.
It is hoped that this manga may act as a bridge to Marx's original work.
