Hartmut Elsenhans and a Critique of Capitalism : Conversations on Theory and Policy Implications
About this item
This book presents a series of interviews with Hartmut Elsenhans on his wide-ranging theories and their policy implications. Over the course of several interviews, Neil Wilcock and Corina Scholz discuss his individual theories on marginality, rent, development, underconsumption, his idealised model of global capitalism, NGOs, social movements, the EU, and himself. Elsenhans' academic hinterland is vast and the stances he takes are uncompromising and independent.These interviews serve as a gateway to some of his more complex theories and function as an introduction for both students and scholars new to his work. For the first time, Wilcock and Scholz bring together Elsenhans' thinking across his range of interests in one volume, acting as a compilation of his distilled thoughts. Whether discussing the reasons behind the economic slowdown, the future of the nation-state international system, or how the Eurozone crisis could be resolved, what stands out is Elsenhans' challenging and thought-provoking ideas and the unusual places he finds solutions.
