Wouldn't it depend on what kind of Marxists? The textbook authors don't seem to have that narrow a view. They would see war as overdetermined. It could be so that the companies of one country can exploit the people of the other country. But couldn't it also be for political and cultural reasons? It could be because of religious disagreements or simply because one country wants power over the other. I don't know how Neoclassicalists would see war. It's an interesting question.
: I was wondering how you thought neo-classicalists would make sense of war. I think thats marxists would see it as exploitation so one country can dominate another and take their resources and money, but how would neo-classists see it? As defending markets? That some governments get pleasure from it? Any ideas?
