    I think Alan Woods has lost his way a bit. The leading Trots are in the CWI, so Peter Taaffe would be up there. However the CWI has loads of leading trots, too many to mention, Lynn Walsh, Hannah Sell, Clare Doyle, countless others.

    Not that you're biased, or anything.

    Alan Woods is terrible, saying he "lost his way a bit" is an puzzling understatement.
    Is the OP asking about people writing today; historical figures or both?

    Daft punk, biased. Surely you are of ill taste of humor.

    What about Richard Seymour, the guy who writes the Lenin's Tomb blog?

    Is there a part of"back on track" which you do not understand?

    What makes you think he wasn't being serious?

    Anyway, back to top Trots, I was gonna mention Andrew Glyn. He drifted out of the CWI, but he was a fairly well known economist. He did a book on capitalism, Capitalism Unleashed. He taught economic at Oxford.

    Only because I just cant stomach reading another long winded paper could anyone tell me what the general trot program is today? For example, how the Transition Program manifests itself today. You get the point. I know a bit off topic but..

    If it is off topic and likely to illicit flame responses it is probably best not to mention it.

    How is a valid question flamming?
