THE AGE OF SPECULATIVE CAPITAL AND GLOBAL CIRCULATION FIGHTS

25 Jul , 2019  

Michel Feher claims in his new book, Rated Agency, that capitalized capitalism, which started in 1970, is akin to a Copernican revolution in that the new regime of capital accumulation no longer focuses on industrial companies based on vertical integration and internal growth, but on this regime both companies as ...

On the Question of Money Endogeneity: Marx vs. the Post-Keynesians

24 Feb , 2019  

This paper argues that the conception of ‘money endogeneity’ formulated and defended by Post-Keynesian economists can be founded on a coherent and theoretically sound way only on the basis of Marx’s theory of value, which the author comprehends as the par excellence monetary value theory.

Money in Marx: From value-form Analysis to an Understanding of Modern Capitalism

26 Jan , 2019  

The rise of finance makes capitalist exploitation more effective but heav-ily reliant on market liquidity. When the latter evaporates, the whole setting quickly disintegrates.

150 years Karl Marx’s “Capital”

24 Jan , 2019  

150 years after its publication, Marx’s Capital remains stunningly relevant today. In essence, it is a research program launched by Marx without ever having been completed, and which is basically an ongoing project, as its object is, as Marx himself explains, the “ideal average” of the capitalist system, the causal ...

Die Wunderformel heißt nämlich: Singular=Plural. Wir werden zeigen, dass man über ...

Wir führen die Diskussion um Spekulation, Zeit und Kapital entlang des Buches »Capital and Time« von Martijn Konings. Bis auf das Problem der Chrematistik bei Aristoteles geht die Kritik an der Spekulation zurück. Sie war von Anfang als eine Kritik an den Investments in solcher Versprechen ausgerichtet, die kein Fundament ...
