Can someone explain where Marx would have invested his money if he had gotten those 5,000 Talers from Lassalle?

Full quote:

"The Jewish nigger Lassalle who, I’m glad to say, is leaving at the end of this week, has happily lost another 5,000 talers in an ill-judged speculation. The chap would sooner throw money down the drain than lend it to a ‘friend’, even though his interest and capital were guaranteed. "

Page 92. It's legit.

>Der jüdische Nigger Lassalle, der glücklicher Weise Ende dieser Woche abreist, hat glücklich wiederr 5000 Taler in einer falsehen Spekulation verloren. Der Kerl würde eher das Geld in den Dreck werfen als es einem „Freunde " pumpen , selbst wenn ihm Zinsen und Kapital garantiert würden.

What is 5000 talers worth in Euros today? Surely he could get a nice gaming / youtube setup?

I found somebody claiming 450 talers would be equal to about $325 around 1840, and then suggesting $325 in 1840 would be $30,000 today. Which I think would put 5,000 talers at $300,000+.

So the jewish nigger Lassale lost another third of a million today on his feeble speculative ventures.

>and then suggesting $325 in 1840 would be $30,000 today

It's pretty much impossible to directly translate value this way through time. Better would simply be to say that $325 at $0.75-$1.0 would equal around one year of unskilled labour at 12 hours/day.

According to the interwebz a Thaler contains .536 Troy ounces of silver. If you multiply 5,000 by that figure you get around 2600 Troy ounces of silver. The going price for a Troy ounce of silver is $15.71. Therefore, the least possible value of 5,000 Thalers is over 42,000 dollars.

There's a bunch of translations of the Marx-Engels correspondence where in that letter Marx calls Lassalle a "Jude Itzig" and not a jewish nigger. It's dubious.

Marx nicknamed Lasalle "Itzig", which I honestly don't know what it means.

From my understanding of the German of the time the closest translation of 'itzig' would be 'kike'

>I have, which will surprise you not a little, been speculating — partly in American funds, but more especially in English stocks, which are springing up like mushrooms this year (in furtherance of every imaginable and unimaginable joint stock enterprise), are forced up to quite an unreasonable level and then, for the most part, collapse. In this way, I have made over £400 and, now that the complexity of the political situation affords greater scope, I shall begin all over again. It’s a type of operation that makes demands on one’s time, and it’s worth while running some risk in order to relieve the enemy of his money.

So we should start trading as a way to get back some of the money the capitalists have taken from us? Then you can take the money and use it build socialist orgs. Hmmm…
