There's really no escaping it: if you want to understand capitalism, you simply have to read Karl Marx's Capital. But this is easier said than done. Capital is Marx's magnum opus – consisting of more than 2,000 pages, over three volumes. It is a masterpiece of analysis, of relentlessly methodical and logical reasoning. So is Capital only for the expert? No. Capital can be read – and understood – by beginners as well.
