World Economy: Capitalism lurches from one crisis to another

Written by Adam Booth Friday, 21 November 2014

latuff-fallen capital“Six years on from the financial crash that brought the world to its knees, red warning lights are once again flashing on the dashboard of the global economy.” Such ominous statements may sound familiar to our regular readers.

As the fires of capitalism crisis spread and continue to ignite in one country after another, optimistic talk of recovery amongst the ruling class has given way to a more sober assessment of the situation – to an understanding that stagnation, decline, and crisis are the new normality under capitalism.
