Daniel Earl Saros is an associate professor of economics at Valparaiso University, USA and Marxian political economist, notable for his work in labour economics and socialist economic computation. In his 2014 book Information Technology and Socialist Construction, he aims to "identify, with as much precision as possible, the logical conditions necessary for the complete abolition of the economic category known as capital, as it is defined in the first volume of Karl Marx's Capital (1976)."[1] He argues that Marx's failure to identify the nature of socialist society was due to the unavailability of the means to implement it at his time, which do exist in today's information technology.[2]
