Karl Marx on Money - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 299
Money/Marx: Marx's thesis: Money means domination over others and could lead to exploitation and impoverishment: "Since money does not show what it is transformed into, everything, goods or not, turns into money. Everything becomes saleable and purchasable... As all qualitative difference of the goods is erased in money, it in turn as a radical leveller erases all differences". (Marx[1867]/1957.(1)
VsMarx: General criticism of Marx's monetary theory:
Trend in profit rate: is now widely disproved.
Money in practice: contrary to Marx's predictions, even communist states could not do without money.(2)
Power/Marx: the idea that possession of money is associated with power is topical for today.
