Conventional theories of capitalism are mired in a deep difficulty: after centuries of dialogue, they're nonetheless not able to inform us what capital is. Liberals and Marxists either think about capital as an ‘economic’ entity that they count number in common devices of ‘utils’ or ‘abstract labour’, respectively. yet those devices are absolutely fictitious. no one has ever been in a position to detect or degree them, and for an outstanding cause: they don’t exist. because liberalism and Marxism depend upon those non-existing devices, their theories hold in suspension. they can not clarify the method that issues so much – the buildup of capital.
This publication bargains a thorough substitute. in response to the authors, capital isn't really a slender fiscal entity, yet a symbolic quantification of strength. It has little to do with application or summary labour, and it extends a ways past machines and creation traces. Capital, the authors declare, represents the geared up energy of dominant capital teams to reshape – or creorder – their society.
Written in easy language, available to put readers and specialists alike, the publication develops a singular political economic system. It takes the reader during the background, assumptions and barriers of mainstream economics and its linked theories of politics. It examines the evolution of Marxist considering on accumulation and the kingdom. And it articulates an cutting edge concept of ‘capital as energy’ and a brand new historical past of the ‘capitalist mode of power’.
