The difficulty in finding Marx.

A blogger asks "Why is it that, as Economics students in the American academia, we are only trained with the (conservative) Smith and (liberal) Keynesian variety, with Smith getting the upper hand, and not even exposed to the equally valid theory of economic forces by Karl Marx?"

He then points out the sad state Marxist thought in typical American universities "Sadly enough, this extends even to graduate school. Marx is not even considered by the majority of Philosophy departments in the U.S. as a philosopher. One can hardly find a Philosophy course devoted to Marx, his influence, and/or his followers."
