[OPE-L] Dismal ScienceHi Phil. Happy new year!

Couldn't  Marx's  analysis of capitalism in _Capital_,
along with the critique of political economy therein,
[if examined in isolation] also be said to be "dismal 
science"?   To take an example from Volume I (since I 
know you prefer that to Volume III), even though the 
"general law of capitalist accumulation" represents an 
alternative to Malthusian  theory,  what -- if anything --  
tells us that it isn't  *also* "dismal science"?

In solidarity, Jerry
