Dry marxist economics

2 stars

Pretty dry! Lots of tables and diagrams. The author aims to show exactly how and how much the countries of the global North exploit those of the global South. He works with lots of numbers and within a marxist-leninist framework. Almost everytime he cites any data, he immediately follows it up with reasons why that data cannot be trusted (usually because bourgeois economics failed to consider XY factor) and why the unknown numbers are probably a lot higher. Honestly, I can't tell how reliable that makes the book - I don't know enough about economics. I'm giving it 2 stars for the reading experience, because that wasn't especially fun. I'm still glad I read it - I brushed up on my Marxism a little, and got a few interesting insights. But I certainly won't pick it up again.
