It does not touch upon the problems Marx was concerned with. As long as the capitalist mode of production prevails, Marxism will retain its relevance, since it concerns itself neither with one or another technique of capital production, nor with the social changes within the frame of capital production, but only with its final abolition".

  71. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - April 9, 2015
    Resisting Neoliberalism

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 2015
    Resisting neoliberalism: "free markets" and "free trade" are an ideological cover for what is actually a form of state capitalism in which working people subsidize and bail out corporations and the rich. In this edition of Other Voices, and more extensively on the Connexions website, we look at both neoliberalism and the resistance to it. The version of capitalism which became dominant by the 1980s has been given the name neoliberalism. The term refers to the global economic restructuring which has taken place, and to the accompanying shifts in the structures of power under which local and national governments have seen their ability to act independently curtailed by international treaties and by institutions which owe their ultimate allegiance to corporate capital. The essence of neoliberalism has been an unending campaign of class struggle by the rich against the rest. Yet resistance continues, and indeed continues to grow.

    Published: 2014
    Reading Marx’ Capital today leaves the same impression as reading Luxemburg’s The Accumulation of Capital. One wonders whether Marx and Luxemburg really wrote their books more than one hundred years ago.

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2005
    This collection of essays underscores the interlocking relationship between prostitution, migration and trafficking. They reveal a deep seated anxiety about borders, economic resources and the fragility of the nation-state. Far from from helping women and children become free from explotaiton, the obession with women sex workers has led to the detriment of all by excluding the questions of human rights, freedon of movement, basics such as food and shelter and a living wage. The book is a call for all those involved -- governments, aid workers and trafickees -- to go beyond a paternalistic and colonial view of these issues and deal with them in a spirit of cooperation.
