Get Capitalism By Nancy Fraser
In this important new book, Nancy Fraser and Raleigh Jaige take a fresh look at the big questions surrounding the strange social form known as "capitalism", raising many of our common assumptions about capitalism and how to criticize it. It shows how various capitalist systems throughout history have relied on a series of institutional separation between the economy, the political system, production and social reproduction, human and non-human nature, and the periodic re-adjustment of these boundaries in response to turbulent crises.
They see how these "border conflicts" provide a key to understanding the contradictions of capitalism and the multiple forms of conflict that arise from it. What emerges is the critique of the renewed crisis of capitalism that puts our present situation in a broader perspective, as well as a sharp diagnosis of the recent emergence of right-wing populism and what will be required of a viable left-wing alternative.
This great new book by two leading monetary theorists will be of great importance to anyone who cares about the nature and future of capitalism and with the key questions of progressive politics today.
