"We are told that foreign correspondent Marx, stone broke, and with a family ill and undernourished, constantly appealed to Greeley and managing editor Charles Dana for an increase in his munificent salary of $5 per installment, a salary which he and Engels ungratefully labeled as the "lousiest petty bourgeois cheating."
But when all his financial appeals were refused, Marx looked around for other means of livelihood and fame, eventually terminating his relationship with the Tribune and devoting his talents full time to the cause that would bequeath the world the seeds of Leninism, Stalinism, revolution and the cold war.
If only this capitalistic New York newspaper had treated him more kindly; if only Marx had remained a foreign correspondent, history might have been different. And I hope all publishers will bear this lesson in mind the next time they receive a poverty-stricken appeal for a small increase in the expense account from an obscure newspaper man."

Yes. He ended up feeling that the Capitalists of the day, set up the factories etc and just took all of the profits after wages and all of the profit paying poorly and looking at much today it's understandable to see how he formed these opinions. Sounds like he never met any honourable capitalists as it were, which was a great shame.
What a complicated world.. Wow.. Easy to see how it happens.
Good morning and THANKS for this article and thoughts on this Cheers
