Capital's Last Chapter, Rodriguez Braun, Carlos, History of Political Economy; 19(2), Summer 1987, pages 299-310.

This article challenge s the widespread view according to which Karl Marx deliberately changed the order of Capital's first volume. Achille Loria and Maximilien Rubel have argued that Marx, in order to avoid censorship, invented an arbitrary "last" chapter on colonization; the real conclusive chapter, consequently, was the preceding and much more revolutionary one, dealing with primitive accumulation. This article explores Marx's opinion on colonies in Capital and defends the original order of chapters in the book.
