Karl Marx

IN MARX’S LABORATORY

Critical Interpretations of the Grundrisse

http://www.brill.com/marxs-laboratory

Edited by Riccardo Bellofiore, University of Bergamo, Italy, Guido Starosta, National University of Quilmes, Argentina, and Peter D. Thomas, Brunel University, London

In Marx’s Laboratory: Critical Interpretations of the Grundrisse provides a critical analysis of the Grundrisse as a crucial stage in the development of Marx’s critique of political economy. Stressing both the achievements and limitations of this much-debated text, and drawing upon recent philological advances, this volume attempts to re-read Marx’s 1857-58 manuscripts against the background of Capital, as a ‘laboratory’ in which Marx first began to clarify central elements of his mature problematic. With chapters by an international range of authors from different traditions of interpretation, including the International Symposium on Marxian Theory, this volume provides an in-depth analysis of key themes and concepts in the Grundrisse, such as method, dialectics and abstraction; abstract labour, value, money and capital; technology, the ‘general intellect’ and revolutionary subjectivity, surplus-value, competition, crisis; and society, gender, ecology and pre-capitalist forms.

Contributors include: Chris Arthur, Luca Basso, Riccardo Bellofiore, George Caffentzis, Martha Campbell, Juan Iñigo Carrera, Howard Engelskirchen, Roberto Fineschi, Michael Heinrich, Fred Moseley, Patrick Murray, Geert Reuten, Tony Smith, Guido Starosta, Massimiliano Tomba, Jan Toporowski, Peter D. Thomas, Joel Wainwright, and Amy Wendling.

Global Crisis

IIPPE FINANCIALIZATION WORKING PAPERS

The IIPPE Financialization Group is pleased to announce its Working Paper Series on political economy and heterodox research in finance. This working paper series aims at offering PHD students and young researchers the possibility to have their papers reviewed by two academics who are working in their field of research. Submission of work on all aspects of heterodoxy and finance is encouraged, with a special but not exclusive focus on developing and emerging countries.

Upon submission, the paper will be assessed by two referees, one senior and one junior academic, according to the topic of research at hand. If the paper is accepted, it will be – after necessary revisions – published as IIPPE Financialization Working Paper Series. This process should give young researchers the chance to get feedback on their work in addition to their supervisor’s and make their work available to a broader audience.

Confirmed senior academics currently include Ben Fine, Victoria Chick, Tom Marois, Alfredo Saad Filho, Jan Toporowski, Alessandro Vercelli etc….  This broad range of people should allow an efficient matching of the paper and the expertise of the selected referee.

If you are interested in submitting your paper, please send to ak82@soas.ac.uk and jm60@soas.ac.uk

Existing IIPPE Financialization Working Papers include papers on the political economy of central banks in emerging markets, the problem of currency substitution and a critical analysis of the transformation of the Turkish financial sector. A complete list can be found under: http://www.iippe.org/wiki/Financialisation_Working_Group

Capitalist Crisis

RESEARCH ON MONEY AND FINANCE

Research on Money and Finance (RMF)  is a network of political economists with a focus on the rise of financialisation and the resulting intensification of crises. RMF aims to generate analytical work on the development of the contemporary monetary and the financial system.

RMF is pleased to announce the launch of its new website! http://www.researchonmoneyandfinance.org

The website contains details, including audio recordings, of the conference organised by RMF in November 2009 when an international group of progressive scholars from a diverse disciplinary background assembled to discuss the outcomes of the current global financial crisis. Participants in the conference, entitled “One Year on from the Panic of 2008: Whither Financialised Capitalism?”, included Gérard Duménil, Gary Dymski, Costas Lapavitsas, Malcolm Sawyer, Jan Toporowski, Paulo L dos Santos, Engelbert Stockhammer, Trevor Evans, Claude Serfati, Karel Williams, Andrew Leyshon and Shaun French, and Robin Blackburn. Streaming audio and MP3 downloads of the conference are available, as well as a selection of the conference papers, at: http://www.researchonmoneyandfinance.org/events/.

The site also contains the RMF discussion paper series, which has recently been updated with a contribution from Annina Kaltenbrunner & Juan Pablo Painceira on the effects of the financial crisis in Brazil. RMF discussion papers can be found at: http://www.researchonmoneyandfinance.org/discussion-papers/. RMF invites further discussion papers that may be in political economy, heterodox economics, and economic sociology. We welcome theoretical and empirical analysis without preference for particular topics. Our aim is to accumulate a body of work that provides insight into the development of contemporary capitalism.
