Furious gold

Marxism Furious gold Kautsky Hilferding Varga Korsch Marx Bauer

Additional materials to the (forthcoming) volume 'Marxist essays on the theory of money' (edited by Daniel Gaido and Noa Rodman).

An earlier introduction listed some of the translated articles from Die Neue Zeit and gave other useful references. The volume includes also 5 articles from the journal Pod Znamenem Marksizma. It is best not to read the old version of the translations online. Same advice for Kautsky's 1913 brochure, which has been newly translated.

Done.

Although, I think - and I'm not an admin, myself - you should be able to approve your own edits in the future. If you click on the revisions tab, you should be able to select "revert to most recent revision" and you'll be good to go.
