    Hey Brendan,

    I just listened to this interview and I heard you mention you hadn’t read much of Richard Wolff, and as a consequence you didn’t mention him much with Harvey and Kliman.. You should check him if you haven’t already, and if you have I’d be interested in your take. From what I’ve read from Wolff “knowledge and class” and “Class Theory and History” he take a much subtler view and focuses on surplus production, and how that production shapes a system. It’s really what turned me on the Marxism in general was him.

    Also, in your “marxists to look out for” I have to point one what I don’t see. Are you familiar with Yanis Varoufakis? I just finished “Global Minotaur”, and found it quite fascinating, however after reading the book I bought one of his Econ textbooks(he is a gifted writer IMO, one of the best ones I’ve come across when explaining econ ideas), “Modern Political Economics:
    Making sense of the post-2008 world” and it is basically a modern text book on Marxist theory in relation to all other ones, at least what I’ve read so far, about a quarter of the way through it.

    Anyway, I really appreciator your site! Thanks for all the work you have put into it.
