Commodity Fetishism

Join Red Wagner and I as we talk about commodity fetishism and its consequences.

Commodity Fetishism (33.4 MBs, 36 Minutes)

Links:

Capital Vol. 1 Chapter 1 Section 4: THE FETISHISM OF COMMODITIES AND THE SECRET THEREOF on the Marxist Internet Archives (This is from the 1st English edition, I would recommend reading the version we mention in the episode, but this is the only version I know of that we can legally link to, it’s says basically the same thing, it’s just has a little less polish)

Again David Harvey’s Reading Marx’s Capital (it is really wonderful)

Late addition: A Reddit user put up this link to the Fairtrade International where you have to apply to get a Fair Trade certification. (Though it is unclear if there are any laws requiring this certification for labeling outside of Sweden.)
