It’s no secret that American college campuses are full of baby boomer Vietnam War protesters who have turned college students into safe space cry babies.
It only makes sense then that the most beloved economist on campus is the inventor of Marxism.

Everyone knows that the foundation of a good education is reading, writing, arithmetic — and communism?
Market Watch reported that Karl Marx is the most assigned economist in U.S. college courses, and his premiere work The Communist Manifesto ranks among the top three most frequently assigned texts.
This data comes from the Open Syllabus project which tracked the books and other works assigned to American college students in more than a million classrooms.
Each author and work received a teaching score from 0 to 100 based upon how often they were assigned.
Left-wing and Keynesian economists received much higher schools than those that taught a more conservative or libertarian school of thought.
There aren’t enough communist thinkers coming out of academia so we need to add more? Really?
