Thanks for telling us about the problem. However, the notion of Department III can be expanded to cover the wider array of socially unreproductive expenditures promoted by generalized-monopoly capitalism. We said that monopoly capitalism was entering a new age, characterized by the gradual—but rapid—dismantling of national production systems.

For my part, I eurocnetrismo it by the leap forward in the degree of centralization in the control of capital by the monopolies, which I have described as the move from the capitalism of monopolies to the capitalism of generalized monopolies. But it was Lenin sami Bukharin who drew the political conclusion from this transformation, a transformation that initiated the decline of capitalism and thus moved the socialist revolution onto the agenda.

The choice to delink is inevitable.


By its very nature capitalist accumulation has always been synonymous with disorder, in the sense that Marx gave to that term: Great overview of basic issues surrounding a Marxist critique of Eurocentrism. The relation between West and East in the European system is in some degree similar to that which rules the relations between the United States and Latin America!

These authors do not assimilate Thermidor to restoration, as the Trotskyist simplification suggests.

Thus the German oligopolies and the German state took on the leadership of European affairs, not for the equal benefit of everyone, but first of all for their own benefit.

Another important consequence of this qualitative transformation of contemporary capitalism is the emergence of the collective imperialism of the triad, which takes the place of the historical national imperialisms of the United States, Great Britain, Japan, Germany, France, and a few others.


All countries of the world outside the triad are enemies or potential enemies, except those who accept complete submission to its economic and political strategy. The contemporary world is still confronted with the same challenges encountered by the revolutions of the twentieth century.

Amin, Samir (1931-)

It is necessary to deconstruct this system with the prospect of reconstructing it later in another form of globalization compatible with communism understood as a more advanced stage of universal civilization.

In the previous forms of competition among firms producing the same use value—numerous then, and independent of each other—decisions were made by eurocentrlsmo capitalist owners of those firms on the basis of a recognized market price which imposed itself as an external datum.

This eurocentrksmo edition contains a new introduction and concluding chapter, both of which make the author’s arguments even more compelling. See the important preface by Annie Lacroix Riz to the French edition: In effect, Soviet Russia delinked. The excrescence of Department III, in turn, favors in fact the erasure of the distinction made by Marx between productive of surplus-value labor and unproductive labor.

Benjamin Kindler rated it really liked it Aug samirr, This allows for added surplus absorption promoted by the state—beyond Department I private investment and beyond the portion of Department II private consumption devoted to capitalist consumption. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Capitalist globalization could not be pursued without the interventions of the United States armed forces and the management of the dollar. Ercan rated it it was amazing Nov 23, I was very interested in the notion that the West has appropriated the culture of Greece into its canon when Greece is geographically and culturally much closer to the East.

Which of these two tendencies would prevail? There are no discussion topics on eurocebtrismo book yet. In Russia, the restoration occurred even later in its revolutionary history, with Gorbachev and Yeltsin. Lenin and Bukharin went much further than Hobson and Hilferding in their analyses of monopoly capitalism and imperialism and drew this major political conclusion: Rejecting the dominant Eurocentric view of world history, which narrowly and incorrectly posits a Since its first publication twenty years ago, Eurocentrism has become a classic of radical thought.


Finally, from —, Stalin chose rapid industrialization and armament and this choice was not without some connection to the rise of fascism. The nineteenth-century pre-monopolist system was not less imperialist.

Instability of the current governments is thus the rule in this context. Russia would provide the triad with oil, gas, and some other natural resources; its industries would be reduced to the status of sub-contracting for the benefit of Western financial monopolies. He currently lives in Dakar, Senegal. Now, this challenge having disappeared, the target of the triad is complete submission, to destroy the capacity of Russia to resist.

Here again we must beware of judging too quickly: The two revolutions had difficulty in achieving stability because they were forced to reconcile eurocentrimso for a socialist outlook and concessions to capitalism.

China was thus able to avoid the fatal error of forced collectivization and invent another way: Russia became an enemy as soon as Putin refused to align politically with the triad and wanted to block the expansionist ambitions dl the latter in Ukraine, even if he does not envision or not yet? The successor of disorder is chaos. It is not by chance that reference is made to lessons of the French Revolution.
