Capitalist Decline, Financial Crises and Revolutionary Prospects




Capitalist Decline, Financial Crisis & Revolutionary Prospects
A talk by Hillel Ticktin – organised by Mute


Hillel Ticktin’s reinterpretation of Marx’s ideas enabled him to foresee the disintegration of Soviet Stalinism years before it occurred. Since then he has argued that capitalism itself is in a state of inexorable decline. During the 20th century, world wars, reformism, Stalinism and recently the credit boom successfully maintained capitalism by keeping the working class passive. But does the end of the credit boom mark the end of capitalism’s survival strategies? Will the coming recession spark a new working class movement? Come and join the debate.
