IN AND OUT OF CRISIS THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL MELTDOWN AND LEFT ALTERNATIVES
by Leo Panitch, Sam Gindin, and Greg Albo
“IN AND OUT OF CRISIS is a useful tool for busy organizers and activists … Its clearly articulated descriptions of the crisis and possible ways forward make it the most useful book to come out of the current crisis.”- IN THESE TIMES
“IN AND OUT OF CRISIS is all but certain to have a broad appeal to researchers and academics, as well as students and lay persons alike.”- ALTERNATE ROUTES
While many around the globe are increasingly wondering if another world is indeed possible, few are mapping out potential avenues … and flagging wrong turns … en route to a post-capitalist future. In this groundbreaking analysis of the financial meltdown, renowned radical political economists Albo, Gindin, and Panitch lay bare the roots of the crisis in the inner logic of capitalism itself. With an unparalleled understanding of capitalism, the authors provocatively challenge the call by much of the Left for a return to a largely mythical golden Age of economic regulation as a check on finance capital unbound. They deftly illuminate how the era of neoliberal free markets has been, in practice, undergirded by state intervention on a massive scale. The authors argue that it is time to start thinking about genuinely transformative alternatives to capitalism … and how to build the collective capacity to get us there. IN AND OUT OF CRISIS stands to be the enduring critique of the crisis and an indispensable springboard for a renewed Left.
