I started reading Das Kapital by Marx. A relevant read given our current capitalist collapse on a global systemic scale -- no thanks to the fandom of Ayn Rand. I've read the shorter political works of Marx -- the 18 Brumaire, the Communist Manifesto, etc.

I'm looking for intelligent conversation about political economy, devoid of the usual shouty prattling in which the Right and Left excel.

You might try posting here . These people are Marxists, but not dogmatists, and some of them are quite knowledgeable. You could probably get a good discussion of the ideas in Das Kapital going there.

You may also want to read A Companion to Marx's Capital by David Harvey. It's fantastic and he also offers a series of lectures for free online that you can watch between sections.

Harvey's videos on Das Kapital are extremely helpful. You can find them here:

Also The Theory of Capitalist Development is a very useful book in doing a journey as big as Das Kapital.
