Political protests against neo-liberal globalization, corporate power and the inequities of contemporary capitalism are increasing all the time. Demonstrations in Seattle, Prague, Genoa and elsewhere have fuelled the debate on the possibility of a radicallly different future. This is a collection of essays from leading Marxist economists on the problems of globalization and the evolution of modern capitalism. It provides a cohesive critique of the weaknesses of the existing system and puts forward an agenda for anti-capitalist thought and action.;Covering key issues such as globalization, the nation state, money and finance, conflict and war, technological change, the environment, class struggle, economic crisis, capitalism in the Third World, the collapse of the USSR, and the transcendance of capitalism, this is a useful introduction to some of the most pressing problems of our time.
