The theories of contemporary imperialism: a critical interpretation. Marxist theory, through imperialism, has an analytical framework for the interpretation of contemporary capitalism. Currently, various aspects of the Marxist camp and those who identify themselves as such use imperialism in their analysis, either through the term neo-imperialism, new-imperialism, late imperialism, Empire, globalization, neoliberalism, or simply imperialism. Thus, the aim of this paper is to analyze the Marxist interpretations of contemporary imperialism and answer the question: is there one contemporary theory of imperialism?

Che senso ha l'alternativa "socialismo o barbarie"'? Financialization and Marxism. Virtually no question has proved as vexing to the field of Marxist studies as the nature of financialization — its causal roots, defining contours, modalities of operation and impact on current economies.

Reading Capital as a Challenge for our Times " The decision to make Rudolf Hilferding's work, especially his " Finance Capital " completed in and first published in , the subject-matter of our current project has been The decision to make Rudolf Hilferding's work, especially his " Finance Capital " completed in and first published in , the subject-matter of our current project has been motivated by the work on our recently published second book in the series: There, four authors have articulated the need and their interest in a deeper discussion on Hilferding's heritage.

Accordingly, the new project has nothing to do with any kind of " anniversary hopping ". It rather is motivated by the overarching and central aim of our series: 1 to promote the tradition of Marx's critique of political economy, while being open for any new facts, questions, ideas, and democratic discussions, and looking for inspiration from the broader history of political economy; 2 to renew the understanding of modern societies and their economies among progressive and socialist forces of society, and come to a better grasp the role finance has to play in it; to break out of deeply and merely defensive policy positions against a barbaric future; to mitigate and find ways to solve the present social and global problems in a democratic, just and solidarity-based way, so that every human being can live in freedom, equality and solidarity, while protecting the natural environment.

We start from the conviction that a critique of Hilferding's theoretical achievements will be of crucial importance for a deeper understanding of the present societal, economic and political situation — especially of the global financial crisis, its root causes, and its connections to other problems and crises.

Based on his understanding of Marx, Hilferding has analysed the ongoing and emerging changes in capital relations, capitalist agencies, class structures and class relations connected to the ongoing processes of concentration and centralisation of production and of capital in their deeply contradictory developments.

He has shown how the further development of banks and joint stock companies, especially in their extension to controlling industry, has modified the very relations between individual and total capital, and thereby the national economies and societies at large, and how this development has triggered and reinforced the internationalization of capital accumulation — with its important consequences for international relations, in the forms of mounting aggressiveness, new modes of colonialism, international conflicts and wars.

While apparently doing the same — or at the very least something similar — in her published writings, Rosa Luxemburg has referred to Hilferding's work only twice: First, in her " Anticritique " responding to the more or less harsh reactions provoked by her " Accumulation of capital " aiming to explain the basis for imperialism.

In her " Anticritique " she replied to Otto Bauer who highly appreciated Hilferding for his competent interpretation of Marx's reproduction schemes in " Capital " volume II and for explaining capitalist crises on this basis. Second, in Luxemburg strongly criticised Kautsky, Hilferding and others for their overestimation of the potential of parliamentarian work for changing society.

Her seemingly small attention to Hilferding's analysis may surprise: Both wanted to show the background and economic basis of modern imperialism. It may also surprise because of her great amount of work dealing with Eduard Bernstein.

But Bernstein had aggressively attacked the findings and proceedings of Hilferding. Further, Hilferding with his " Finance capital " has critically dealt with revisionism and with any approach describing the more or less new juridical. Vicende novecentesche di una teoria, in Marx, giugno , The Critique of the Gotha Programme, written by Karl Marx in and posthumously published in , contains his most detailed statements on the essential features of a communist economy.

One of them, the end of the exchange of One of them, the end of the exchange of commodities, was a widely accepted hallmark of the post-capitalist society among German social democrats like Kautsky and Hilferding, as well as among Russian Bolshevists, who actually tried to apply Marxian theory in Soviet Russia.

At the end of the Eighties, some of the former reformers emphasized the victory of market relations over planning. In more recent debates, some marxist authors insisted on the incompatibility between exchange of commodities and true socialism, while others held Marx's model of socialism accountable for the failures of real socialism. The general objective of this text is to answer the following question: did the unequivocal conservative change that followed the coup that drew Temer to Brazilian presidency in May mean a change of content that interrupted the The general objective of this text is to answer the following question: did the unequivocal conservative change that followed the coup that drew Temer to Brazilian presidency in May mean a change of content that interrupted the anti-hegemonic and anti-imperialist PT foreign policy?

Thiago Franco. Las antinomias de la conciencia de clase de cuello blanco. Revista Memoria Rudolf Hilferding on English Mercantilism. In Rudolf Hilferding, the author of the famous book Finance Capital: A Study of the Most Recent Development of Capitalism, published an article on the history of English mercantilism in Die neue Zeit, the theoretical organ of the This article is followed by the first English edition of Hilferding's "The Early Days of English Political Economy," previously available only in German, preceded by an introduction which contextualizes it in the framework of the history of Marxist scholarship.

These reflexions on the structure of money try to clarify its connection with the subject, that money establishes every time in its different systematic roles. With Subject, it is here intended the different figures of social With Subject, it is here intended the different figures of social subjectivity, that may well be also expressed by the different possible figures assumed by an enterprise e.

Partnership or corporation. From an essentially Marxist perspective, between Marx and Simmel an attempt will be made in the determination of the emergence of money as such, after which the following observation will be developed: Within the simple circulation of goods G-M-G , where money plays one of its roles, that is, as means of payment, the corresponding societies ar those, which commerce according to such Mercantilistic logic, like, for example, commercial companies as such, which sell commodities for money to buy new commodities - without however sublating the acquire-sell-circle and therefore without the capability to produce new social wealth.

In contrast, as soon as money transforms itself in Capital and therefore describes the circle M-G-M1, not only does the commodity producing capitalistic society emerge, but also, and primarily, the importance and power of joint-stock companies, where the most important moment of production and labour for the creation of new real social wealth will be considered globally as a simple merchandise to essentially realize the auto-valorizing movement of capital M-M1.

Marxismo y finanzas. Revista Memoria, Num. Did Hilferding influence Schumpeter? Panayotis Michaelides. The Schumpeter—Hilferding Nexus. Furthermore, Hilferding made a distinction between the entrepreneur who is in charge of the use of capital in production and the capitalist who advances his capital and bears the risk.

There, Hilferding identified another personality who has similar tasks to those of an innovative manager. Moreover, regarding credit, for both theoreticians, it is determined by its demand side i. In this context, their views on economic instability have further similarities, since for both theorists, development presupposes an innovation, which enables the firm to earn an extra profit and stimulates the demand for credit in order to finance new investments through credit creation.

As for socialism, Hilferding regarded it as the organization of production not by and for the benefit of capitalist magnates but by and for society as a whole, whereas for Schumpeter socialism is an institutional arrangement that vests the management of the productive forces with some public authority.

This paper focuses on recent developments concerning money and banking, have come to dominate our socio economic context. A basic premise of the analysis presented here is that the precise modalities of money's regulation play a decisive role in shaping the growth pattern of advanced capitalist economies. We have witnessed a transformation in the nature of financial capital, whose principal features form the central focus of our paper. The cumulative effects of these developments threaten the stability of our economic system, and therefore need to be redirected by coordinated police action.
