Digitalisierung? Sharing Economy? Absolutely Capitalism As Usual!

It is one of the most influential and well-known books in the world: Capital by Karl Marx. Less well known is the subtitle of the work, which describes Marx’ program: "Critique of political economy." But which kind of economy is criticized here, what is the critique about and what insights provides it – 150 years after it has been formulated? Ursula Huws, University of Hertfordshire, Jenny Simon, University of Kassel, and Nadine Müller, Ver.di union, are discussing these questions.
