Frédéric Zenati, Law and Economy after Marx
One can address a double criticism to Marx' economism. On the first place, it is a reduction of what may be the influence of matter on history. Others phenomenon, as important as economy, such as war or sexuality, determine the future of mankind and the organisation of society. He also ignores, in a strong reaction against German idealism, the closeness of the links between law and economy which, far from being perfectly distinct instances, verge in fact with fusion. This intimacy explains the fact that modern societies are characterised as much by the importance they allow to the law as by the one they recognise to the economy.
