9780745332390: The Failure of Capitalist Production: Underlying Causes of the Great Recession

The recent financial crisis and Great Recession have been analysed endlessly in the mainstream and academia, but this is the first book to conclude, on the basis of in-depth analyses of official US data, that Marx’s crisis theory can explain these events.

Marx believed that the rate of profit has a tendency to fall, leading to economic crises and recessions. Many economists, Marxists among them, have dismissed this theory out of hand, but Andrew Kliman’s careful data analysis shows that the rate of profit did indeed decline after the post-World War II boom and that free-market policies failed to reverse the decline. The fall in profitability led to sluggish investment and economic growth, mounting debt problems, desperate attempts of governments to fight these problems by piling up even more debt – and ultimately to the Great Recession.

Kliman's conclusion is simple but shocking: short of socialist transformation, the only way to escape the ‘new normal’ of a stagnant, crisis-prone economy is to restore profitability through full-scale destruction of existing wealth, something not seen since the Depression of the 1930s.

About the Author:

Andrew Kliman is Professor of Economics at Pace University, New York. He is the author of Reclaiming Marx's 'Capital': A Refutation of the Myth of Inconsistency and many writings on crisis theory, value theory and other topics.

Review:

The Failure of Capitalist Production is essential reading for all Marxists and lefts interested in what caused the Great Recession. It debunks the fads and fashionable arguments of neoliberalism, underconsumption and inequality with a battery of facts. It restores Marx's law of profitability to the centre of any explanation of capitalist crisis with compelling evidence and searching analysis. It must be read. -- Michael Roberts Among the myriad publications on the present day crisis, this work stands out as something unusual. Kliman is an excellent theorist, and an equally excellent analyst of empirical data. -- Paresh Chattopadhyay, Universite du Quebec a Montreal Clear, rigorous and combative. Kliman demonstrates that the current economic crisis is a consequence of the fundamental dynamic of capitalism, unlike the vast bulk of superficial contemporary commentary that passes for economic analysis. -- Rick Kuhn, Deutscher Prize winner, Reader in Politics at the Australian National University and long-time activist. One of the very best of the rapidly growing series of works seeking to explain our economic crisis. ... The scholarship is exemplary and the writing is crystal clear. Highly recommended! -- Professor Bertell Ollman, Department of Politics, NYU, author of Dance of the Dialectic
