V.I. Lenin on “Pure Capitalism”

Vladimir-Lenin1

“But suppose, for the sake of argument, free competition, without any sort of monopoly, would develop capitalism and trade more rapidly. Is it not a fact that the more rapidly trade and capitalism develop, the greater is the concentration of production and capital which gives rise to monopoly?”

— Lenin, “Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism”
