Elements of Socialism: A Text-Book

By John Spargo; George Louis Arner | Go to book overview
strides. We are already in the presence of great monopolies which appear to the Socialist as industrial forms ready for the spirit of democracy, of Socialism.
SUMMARY
1. Under capitalism there is a uniform tendency toward the concentration of industry in the hands of the few.
2. The persistence of competition in petty industries is relatively unimportant and does not invalidate the theory of concentration.
3. The same tendency is shown in modern agriculture through the decreasing proportion of farms owned by their operators, and in the increasing dependence of the farmer upon capitalist industry.
4. Wealth as well as capital tends towards class concentration.
QUESTIONS
1. Characterize the three stages of capitalism.
2. On what grounds is the theory of concentration attacked?
3. How may the persistence of small industries be explained?
4. What was the theory of Marx in regard to agricultural concentration? How must it be modified?
5. Along what lines is the dependence of the farmer upon capitalist industry increasing?
6. What are the difficulties involved in determining the degree of the concentration of wealth?
7. What is the Socialist attitude toward the concentration of wealth and industrial power?
