The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire

by Sam Gindin and Leo Panitch
£12.99   paperback  Verso Books (2013)

The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire by Sam Gindin and Leo Panitch A groundbreaking account of America's role in global capitalism.
 
The all-encompassing embrace of world capitalism at the beginning of the twenty-first century was generally attributed to the superiority of competitive markets. Globalization had appeared to be the natural outcome of this unstoppable process. But today, with global markets roiling and increasingly reliant on state intervention to stay afloat, it has become clear that markets and states aren't straightforwardly opposing forces.
 
In this groundbreaking work, Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin demonstrate the intimate relationship between modern capitalism and the American state. The Making of Global Capitalism identifies the centrality of the social conflicts that occur within states rather than between them. These emerging fault lines hold out the possibility of new political movements that might transcend global markets.
