Funny quote….History repeats itself

This was printed in the letters page of the Times today. It cracked me up so I had to post it on my blog:

“The owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. ……..

“The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalised, and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism.” – Karl Marx, Das Kapital, 1867.

Turns out that this quote is a hoax that has been circulating for some months. Still pretty funny though…… ( – :
