Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For fun - if by fun you mean a geeky contemporary critique of Marx - I recommend Kropotkin.

The parts where Kropotkin criticises Marx use of math could have been written today at ET. Kropotkin was a geologist and took his math seriously.

Kropotkin was interested in production. The idea of writing about market gardens would have seemed ridiculous to Marx and Engels.

If you were into that kind of thing, you could draw a left right diagram for american system economics

kropotkin -> list

and one for  english system

marx -> hayek

and come up with something.

Kropotkin's book Mutual Aid is a good antidote to the "Nature red in tooth and claw" school of thought as well as the Social-Darwinists.  

Kropotkin, George, Veblen, "The American System,"  ... we seem to be off on a 'forgotten economists' kick.

More like repressed or "actively" forgotten economists.
