Questions such as these cut to the roots of the capitalist system. From the perspective of our analysis, honest answers to these questions will lead to a resounding ‘no’. Liberal capitalist reformers in the main fail to comprehend ‘that money is the alien form of appearance of abstract labour’ and they refuse to challenge the money fetish as the master trope of capitalist social relations (Smith, 2002). Of course, liberal reform efforts to make global capitalism more ‘humane’ are welcome, but it still remains the case that in the last instance they cannot prevent financial disaster from being visited upon developing countries or the poor in general because these problems are inherent in the system of property and productive relations that constitute the very blood and gristle of the capitalist system (Smith, 2002).
The schools are still assumed to exist for the sake of job preparation, despite continuing, if largely empty, rhetoric linking education with democracy and a politically-engaged citizenry. While the point of the American public schools has not changed much, the economy they were designed to support has.

But more than this, an historical materialist understanding foregrounds the manner in which difference is central to the exploitative production/reproduction dialectic of capital, its labour organisation and processes, and in the way labour is valued and remunerated. The real problem is the internal or dialectical relation that exists between capital and labour within the capitalist production process itself – a social relation in which capitalism is intransigently rooted. This social relation – essential to the production of abstract labour – deals with how already existing value is preserved and new value (surplus value) is created (Allman, 2001).
