Last Exit Magazine « Prophet of Profit

A quote attributed to Karl Marx has been haunting the internet.

“Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalised, and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism.”

-Karl Marx, Das Kapital, 1867

The Last Exit Magazine and James Ledbetter discuss how the quote is in fact NOT Karl Marx's:
