The Capitalist Cycle is a translation of a previously unknown work in
Marxist economic theory. Originally published in 1928, this
rediscovered work is one of the most creative essays witten by a
Soviet economist during the first two decades after the Russian
Revolution. Following the dialectic of Hegel and Marx, Maksakovsky
aims to provide a 'concluding chapter' for Marx's Capital. The book
examines economic methodology and logically reconstructs Marx's
analysis into a comprehensive and dynamic theory of cyclical economic
crises. The introductory essay by Richard B. Day situates
Maksakovsky's work within the Hegelian and Marxist philosophical
traditions by emphasizing the book's dialectical logic as well as its
contribution to economic science.
