Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

The DEVELOPMENT of CAPITALISM in RUSSIA   Written in 1899

Chapter I. The Theoretical Mistakes of the Narodnik Economists


VIII. Why Does the Capitalist Nation Need a Foreign Market?

“…the necessity of seeking a foreign market by no means proves that capitalism is unsound, as the Narodnik economists like to picture matters. Quite the contrary. This necessity demonstrates the progressive historical work of capitalism, which destroys the age-old isolation and seclusion of systems of economy (and, consequently, the narrowness of intellectual and political life)”, and which links all countries of the world into a single economic whole.
