While most mainstream commentators view the crisis that provoked the Great Recession as having passed, these essays from Richard Wolff paint a far less rosy picture. Drawing attention to the extreme downturn in most of capitalism's old centers, the unequal growth in its new centers, and the resurgence of a global speculative bubble, Wolffin his uniquely accessible stylemakes the case that the crisis should be grasped not as a passing moment, but as an evolving stage in capitalism's history.
