  1. From the point of view of whom to answer this question? Marxists? The liberals? Anarchists? Being right is relative. There are pros and cons to any ideology. It is impossible to judge the objective correctness of ideological statements. For for Marxists, Marx was right in everything, and for liberals, for example, in the need to return from slave-owning formations to universal equality, and even then they have different ways of returning to this equality (and the very concept of equality). The question should be formulated more precisely. Otherwise, it's all empty demagoguery.

  2. The main thing I was wrong about was that I saw in it only the most “wild” option, “clearing” it of everything except the power of chistogan. And then-seeing only this skeleton. But society does not consist solely of relations of production.

    There were other misconceptions. In Marx's time, consumption was largely physiologically motivated. Now in developed countries – mostly prestigious. Both production and production relations were oriented accordingly.

    Now the production of “services” has come to the fore – it has its own specifics.

    In Marx's time, rough physical labor played a dominant role. Right now, it's not dominating at all. Uneducated, ignorant, and uncultured workers are now almost useless.

    The mass media played a very different role in Marx's time than they do now. No wonder they are now called the “fourth power”.

    In his time, the state almost did not interfere in production.

    Now in developed countries the manufacturer is entangled in a bunch of laws and regulations,(including about competition). The state has become another major player in the field of industrial relations.

    At present, the Marxian model of capitalism – too simplified and primitivized even then-has become unsuitable for a global adequate description of capitalism. Although it retains its value for understanding individual aspects.

    For almost two hundred years , the world has changed, technology and science have changed dramatically, and the nature of work has changed. It's ridiculous not to notice.

  3. Nothing. His entire theory is based on the incorrect premise that labor creates value. It is not true by its very nature, and attempts to implement it in practice have confirmed its utter failure. But this theory lives on, because it exploits the feeling of envy, and envy is an inescapable feature of the human race.

    I have a whole article on this topic, where everything is chewed up and put on shelves.

  4. Marx was right first of all about monopoly, because capitalism, which is not limited by anything, leads to monopoly in various spheres of life, which eventually breaks the entire economy as a whole. He was also right about globalizing through capitalism.

  5. Suppose you live under capitalism. You got a lot of money and decided to do business. We decided to produce refrigerators. We rented a room, hired workers and engineers, started working, and the profit went. You built a candle room. But there are more such entrepreneurs, as capitalism ignores planning. Products began to buy less, gained more. You are forced to cut workers, engineers, and finally get up. There was an overproduction, a crisis.

  6. That when there is a super-rich minority and a disenfranchised majority, it is unfair. However, all the recipes offered by Marx-this is no longer good. The practice of implementing them is terrible.

  7. You need to work well, then you will live like these–

    Thus, the average fortune of a Russian billionaire exceeded $4 billion. The wealth of the 10 richest Russians exceeds the amount of $10 billion. This “club” includes, among others, Leonid Mikhelson F 1($18.4 billion), Alexey Mordashov F 2 ($17.5 billion), Vladimir Lisin F 3 ($16.1 billion), Gennady Timchenko F 4 ($16 billion), Alisher Usmanov F 5 ($15.2 billion), Vagit Alekperov F 6 ($14.5 billion), Mikhail Fridman($14.4 billion), Vladimir Potanin F 8 ($14.3 billion), Andrey Melnichenko F 9 ($13.2 billion) and Viktor Vekselberg F 10 ($12.4 billion).

  8. Marx proved the finiteness of capitalism. He described it, but was able to say that he will come to replace it. Marx is revered not only by Communists, but also by ultra-liberals.Even Attali (the author of the Mondialist concepts of the future) wrote a book about him. It is fair to say that it was not only Marx who worked on the theory of capital, and he did not create his work from scratch. We should not forget that Marx was a representative of the German school of philosophy. Wider than Hegel's. If you read Marx carefully, you can see some connection with Nietzsche's ideas.

  9. Marx was right that capitalism is just another form of socio-economic development. Like any formation, capitalism must pass through all stages of formation, development, and decline as the productive forces develop. Marx's mistake is that he proclaimed the possibility of a premature change from capitalism to socialism by means of a proletarian revolution, before the required level of development of the productive forces is reached. In this he showed himself not as a scientist, but as an idealist.

  10. This is the only researcher of the capitalist nature that no one has refuted. Even capitalist practice, as if condemned to them, follows the course of the laws formulated by him, only proving the indisputability of Karl Marx's discoveries.

  11. The fact that it inevitably leads to a crisis of overproduction and a world war for sales markets. He was also right in his theory of surplus value, which shows that the capitalist's profit is derived from the labor of the wage worker
