Comedian and writer Colm O'Regan casts his comic lens upon the complexities of capitalism.

In this episode, the second of four, he looks at the history of the world's prevalent economic system.

And to do so he gets close to Karl Marx - by visiting both his London grave and his revolutionary ideas.

Marx predicted that capitalism would meet a "violent death". So what would he make of its endurance into the 21st Century?
