Obituary: Israel Renson (1987)

Obituary from the February 1987 issue of the Socialist Standard

We regret to record the death of I. Renson. Although he never joined The Socialist Party, he did valuable work in our propaganda. organising classes and lectures about our case.

Perhaps most notably, he was joint author of the booklet Money Must Go (published in 1943) which was a simplified exposition of the capitalist economic system. how it exploits and impoverishes the majority of the population and why it must be replaced with socialism.

Money Must Go was effective propaganda for socialism; it rapidly sold out in this country and was especially popular in Canada and the USA, infected as they were at the time with the false theories of "Social Credit ". To those who knew him. 1. Renson will be missed with sorrow.
