--Economic Determinism
     Economic laws determine the course of history

Economic determinism is the theory which attributes primacy to the economic structure over politics in the development of human history. It is usually associated with the theories of Karl Marx, although many Marxist thinkers have dismissed plain and unilateral economic determinism as a form of "vuleconomic laws determine the course of historygar Marxism", or "economism", nowhere included in Marx's works.

Economic determinism as understood by Marxism is the belief that . The law of economic determinism attributed to Marx's historical materialism is simple: self-preservation or the pursuit of food, clothing, and shelter is the supreme instinct in man. Therefore, the argument in favor of economic determinism says, it is natural to expect that the overwhelming amount of the decisions made by people will involve their pursuit of food, clothing, and shelter. Furthermore, it is predictable that these decisions will be made in such a way that they will favor acquisition of food, clothing, or shelter. A decision made by an individual against food, clothing, or shelter would clearly be against that person's interest and would clearly be uncommon if not rare. In as much as food, clothing, and shelter are commodities which are bought, sold and/or traded in society. The pursuit of these commodities is an economic activity.
