Abstract

‘A timely and worthwhile project ... will fill a major hole in the currently available literature.’ Professor Duncan Foley, Professor of Economics, New School University, NY Political protests against neoliberal globalisation, corporate power and the inequities of contemporary capitalism are increasing all the time. Demonstrations in Seattle, Prague, Genoa and elsewhere have fuelled the debate on the possibility of a radically different future. This book is a collection of essays from some of the world's leading Marxist economists on the problems of globalisation and the evolution of modern capitalism. With contributions from Suzanne de Brunhoff, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Ben Fine, Simon Clarke, John Holloway and John Weeks among others, it provides a cohesive critique of the weaknesses of the existing system and puts forward a new agenda for anti-capitalist thought and action. Covering key issues such as globalisation, the nation state, money and finance, conflict and war, technological change, the environment, class struggle, economic crisis, capitalism in the Third World, the collapse of the USSR, and the transcendence of capitalism, this is an ideal introduction to some of the most pressing problems of our time.
