2000-luvun marxilaisuus  Skotlantilainen taloustieteilij� ja tietojenk�sittelytieteen professori (Reader) Paul Cockshott vaatii ty�v�enliikett� kohtaamaan oikeiston talousopit silm�st� silm��n ja kehitt�m��n niiden haastajaksi omista luokkaeduistaan ponnistavaa teoriaa 1800-luvulla kehitetyn poliittisen taloustieteen pohjalta. Cockshottin mukaan t�h�n teht�v��n kuuluu my�s sen kuvaaminen, miten tulevaisuuden sosialistinen talousj�rjestelm� on tarkoitus j�rjest��. On irtauduttava L�nsi-Euroopan marxilaisuudelle tyypillisest� spekulatiivis-filosofisesta menetelm�st� ja hy�dynnett�v� muun muassa tilastollisen mekaniikan ja laskettavuuden teorian kaltaisia tieteenhaaroja sosialistista suunnitelmataloutta hahmoteltaessa.

Steuern fur den Sozialismus Article on tax policy in Venezuela. It focuses on the limits to funding internal expenditure from dollar revenues for oil sales without an adequate internal tax base. Particular focus is paid to the conflict between attempting to maintain exchange controls and attempting to control Bolivar inflation when running a current account surplus. The exchange controls are there to prevent expatriation of revenue by the rich. The article argues that it would be better to have an effective tax on property incomes.

�konomisches �bergangsprogramm zum Sozialismus des 21. Jahrhunderts in der Europ�ischen Union Dieser programmatische Artikel versucht die wirtschaftlichen Schritte zu skizzieren, die notwendig w�ren, um eine kapitalistische Wirtschaft wie die der EU in eine sozialistische zu überführen.
