Instead capitalism would make war to redivide the world markets at the expense of the workers.  I found some hints that seemed logical, although most workers were not really convinced. " Those are all entertaining theories, but nothing in the United States to date has worked out as theorized.

My memory is that very much later the investors recovered about ten cents on the dollar deposited.  That was probably close to half the population of Seattle.  This caused spontaneous violent protests from the people directly affected.  I was granted the floor by votes of the members at the meetings because many members wanted to know what the Communist program really was.  These were the policies of the Communist Party's Unemployed Councils, which additionally advocated unemployment insurance and demanded union wages be paid for all work relief.
