In 1845-46 Marx wrote a critique on List's "The National System of
Political Economy" (Das nationale System der politischen Oekonomie - 1841).
Marx did not finish the article. The fragment of the extended outline is
not included in Marx/Engels Collected Works. However, the manuscript was
first published in 1972 in the journal "Beitraege zur Geschichte der
Arbeiterbewegung", vol. 14 (1972), p. 425-446. (I don't know whether it has
been published in the new MEGA yet.)
For Engels' critique on List see his
Second Elberfeld Address (Zweite Elberfelder Rede -1845), in MEW vol. 2,
The two pieces together with a substantial commentary "Wissenschaft und
wirkliche Entwicklung der Gesellschaft" by J. Bischoff have been
republished in 1972 under the title K. Marx - F. Engels, Kritik der
buergerlichen Oekonomie, VSA-Verlag, Westberlin.
I think these writings cannot be ignored when discussing the standing of F.
List from a critical point of view.
