The Nature and Logic of Capitalism
An economic crisis in capitalism is a deep and prolonged interruption of the economy-wide circuit of capital. The Marxist tradition conceptualizes two types of crisis tendencies in capitalism: a crisis of deficient surplus value and a crisis of excess surplus value. Two mechanisms that become important in crises of deficient surplus value are the rising organic composition of capital and the profit squeeze: two mechanisms that are salient in crises of excess surplus value are problems of insufficient aggregate demand and increased financial fragility.
This chapter offers a synthetic and synoptic account of the Marxist literature on capitalist crisis. Keywords: capitalism , crisis , rising organic composition , profit squeeze , underconsumption , financial fragility.

The Nature and Logic of Capitalism
Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Economists , historians , political economists and sociologists have adopted different perspectives in their analyses of capitalism and have recognized various forms of it in practice. These include laissez-faire or free-market capitalism , state capitalism and welfare capitalism. Different forms of capitalism feature varying degrees of free markets , public ownership ,  obstacles to free competition and state-sanctioned social policies. The degree of competition in markets and the role of intervention and regulation as well as the scope of state ownership vary across different models of capitalism.

Just two sections from Chapter 1 reproduced here. The case for its existence depends on the hypothesis of some radical break or coupure, generally traced back to the end of the s or the early s. As the word itself suggests, this break is most often related to notions of the waning or extinction of the hundred-year-old modern movement or to its ideological or aesthetic repudiation.

Skip to main content Skip to main navigation menu Skip to site footer. Keywords: nature, society, social theory. Abstract There are four logical possibilities for conceiving the relationship of nature and society: the reduction of society to nature, the projection of nature into society, dualism, and a nature-society-dialectic. This differentiation results in four different approaches. Nature is a self-organizing system that produces an evolutionary hierarchy of interconnected systems with specific qualities. Society is a product of nature where humans produce and reproduce structures that enable and constrain human practices in dynamic processes. Parts of nature are observed and appropriated by humans from within society, these parts are socially constructed and form a subsystem of society.

Rigorous thinking at a rather high level of generalization makes this a stimulating but sometimes frustrating book. Economics, psychology and history are extensively deployed and produce many provocative findings about accumulation, profits, wages, technology, structural change, and related matters. Property rights are stressed as being of the essence of capitalism, but the countervailing forces that have contributed to the current "crisis of intervention" are somewhat slighted. Prediction is abjured. Like others of Professor Heilbroner's works, this is a book of exceptional interest and considerable originality.
