Abstract: Karl Marx was one of the first analysts of capitalism’s trends and problems. Here I offer a formal exposition of his thesis that the rate of profit tends to fall as a consequence of capital accumulation and analyze the most well-known counter-arguments. I then use the framework developed in the text to suggest a particular standpoint from which to look at development policy.
