The Fault Lines of Inequality: COVID 19 and the Politics of Financialization

The Fault Lines of Inequality: COVID 19 and the Politics of Financialization by Huw Macartney
English | EPUB | 2022 | 128 Pages | ISBN : 3030969134 | 0.8 MB

This book examines how decisions made by the Conservative government during the COVID19 pandemic have increased economic inequality in the UK. Decades of austerity, asset-based welfare and financialization had already exacerbated social divisions in the UK prior to the pandemic. The political blueprint behind these measures combined Privatized Keynesianism and the Asset Economy. To explain, economists have highlighted that inequality derives from the fact that income from wealth increases at a faster rate than income from wages.

State and Statehood in the Global South: Theoretical Approaches and Empirical Studies by Miriam Fahimi
English | EPUB | 2022 | 238 Pages | ISBN : 3030939995 | 1.7 MB

This book focuses on critical approaches to the state and state theory in the Global South. In light of the reemergence of the post-colonial and peripheral state as a crucial institution and actor in the 21st century’s capitalist world-system, the book examines the nature, functions and development dynamics of the state in the periphery, as well as its constituting interests and struggles. Drawing on the works of Poulantzas and Gramsci, dependency and world-systems theory, as well as the regulation school and the German Ableitungsdebatte, stategraphy and critical realism, it analyzes the development of different theoretical perspectives on the state, elaborates on their theoretical, ontological and epistemological presuppositions, and illustrates their methodological, practical and ethical implications.

Financial Capital in the 21st Century: A New Theory of Speculative Capital

Financial Capital in the 21st Century: A New Theory of Speculative Capital by Achim Szepanski
English | EPUB | 2022 | 388 Pages | ISBN : 3030931501 | 0.8 MB

“A brilliant contribution to present-day discussions on Marx’s value theory, money, capital and finance, highlighting the cardinal regulatory role of the financial sphere in capitalism. Achim Szepanski, following Marx’s analyses, takes finance seriously. He shows that ‘financialization’ is not a deviation from some ‘good’ industrial capitalism, or a new, ‘predatory’, method of exploitation (‘exploitation by dispossession’ etc.), a ‘bad’ exploitation as opposed to the ‘good’ exploitation by the ‘productive’ capital, but a historic development
expressing the formal determinations innate in the capitalist mode of production.”
