About this item

While political economy approaches to the global crisis can roughly be divided into three sections, distinct lines may not be easy as systemic, conjunctural and policy-driven factors often overlap and display a complex relationship. First, some result from the contradictory structural characteristics of the capitalist mode of production. Second, many argue that crises result from the conjucture of unanticipated events. Third, economic crisis can also result from government policies, intention or unintentional. The book is divided into five parts. After the introduction (part I), part II (crisis and profitability) exclusively focuses on the role of profit rate. Part III (the crisis in economic and social reproduction) over six chapters treats various theoretical and empirical perspectives. With a narrow focus part IV considers the role of financialization. Finally, part V covers the crisis in Greece. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
