Karl Marx

From dKosopedia

Karl Heinrich Marx was an immensely influential German political philosopher, political economist, journalist, and socialist revolutionary. Marx wrote about a wide range of issues but is today most famous for his analysis of the political economic forces driving historical change.

Marx was born the son of German Jewish convert to Lutheranism in Trier, Germany on May 5, 1818. He died in London on March 14, 1883 and is today buried in Highgate Cemetery.

Some economic historians credit Marx with having done a good job of criticizing capitalism during his time period. Marx is sometimes unfairly criticised fro failing to do the impossible: fully describing his predicted socialist and communist futures.
