Down with your staccato triangles of change!

SMITH_MARX

Adam Smith (Institute) vs Karl Marx

A really succinct and excellent piece by Madsen Pirie here on what Marx got wrong, particularly about his Hegelian model of change. As Pirie argues, change is more evolutionary than revolutionary, which means Hegel’s rather violent and triangular model of thesis, antithesis and synthesis is not a great means of describing what actually happens. Read Madsen’s piece on the ASI Website.
