Stone, in particular, keeps his Facebook followers updated about his Maduro's handling of the ensuing riots showed not only his inability to deal with crisis but also resembled post-democratic capitalism. Hence many Marxists have attempted to explain just about all of capitalism's crises with this theory, whilst other Marxists have emphasised the role of excessive credit/debt. Geopolitical dominance in the wake of World War II, the United States spearheaded the creation of a set of international . Jun 11, 2013 - This is what the world experienced in 2007-08, that has been temporarily patched-up with yet more debt, this time from governments in the form of so-called 'quantitative-easing' (buying back the government debt already sold to the financial institutions) & the purchase of other bank bad debts. Mar 11, 2009 - Beginning in the late 1940s, responding to the crisis of industrial capitalism of the Great Depression in the 1930s and taking advantage of U.S. Aug 26, 2013 - Two decades of endless debate followedGenovese's synthesis, recycling the basic concepts of “agency” and “hegemony” long after the midcentury social democratic moment that inspired them had disappeared. Maybe nobody agreed with Genovese For Johnson, the classic period of the antebellum South was not just an endless performance of anxious white masculinity; it was also the site of a series of capitalist crises on the Harvey model. Though I have to So yes, there's obvious reasons for the book now, but I think there are also more subterranean motivations going on that I'll probably know about in ten years' time. Mar 28, 2013 - It may be that these difficulties were based upon a falling rate of profit at the time, but even if this was just a crisis of overproduction, the authorities seemed determined to avoid a re-run of the 1930's, particularly at the height of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. Because of the crisis of overproduction (too much produced relative to what the market can afford to buy sustainably) capitalism can no longer even pretend to offer humanity improved living standards. Aug 1, 2011 - I think the book probably comes out of the same situation: when capitalism is in crisis, it becomes newly visible, and becomes a possible object of criticism. I think many liberal and conservative commentators buy their rejection of Marx on the cheap, and it's therefore not worth anything. If you look back at the history of the last 20 years, you come to the realization that firms like Goldman Sachs, for example, has been bailed out five times over the last 20 years. Feb 2, 2014 - For quite some time now I ask myself why the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez was, and still is, so much admired, not only by idealistic youngsters, but also by figures such as director Oliver Stone. At the same time, Americans should always acknowledge that there will be variation in the preferred liberal democratic model and that the United States is not always the best or the fullest embodiment of liberal democracy. By the time of the Godesberg Program in the late 1950s, they were explicitly saying that they were in for a more humane capitalism. It helps to juxtapose Chile and Venezuela to clarify that point. Jan 22, 2013 - In this sense, social democracy was complicit in the deepening of capitalism. Jun 10, 2013 - If I were to define crony-capitalism, I really use the term cronyism because I don't think that it speaks of capitalism per se, but cronyism is essentially where economic decisions in terms of who accumulates wealth and who doesn't, is not based on merit, it's not based on economic prowess or success or meeting . Jul 9, 2012 - There is no legitimacy crisis of the system, no mass-scale revolts questioning the very logic and ethos of democratic capitalism (of the magnitude of the social protest in the late 1960s), because the very social contract has been altered to exclude issues of social safety from the public authority's Yet, not even leftist parties are proposing the de-privatisation of parts of the economy, thus failing to pursue a genuine left agenda exactly when the time seems to be ripe for it.
