Daniel’s book The End of Corporations traces the crisis of capitalism since August 2007, first in the U.S. with the fall of Bear Sterns, AIG, Lehman Brothers, and then with the crisis spreading out to affect the whole world. It also draws a comparison between the current crisis and the one in 1929, analyzes the subsequent evolution of capitalism in the twentieth century, the post-war “boom,” the rise of multinational corporations, and the crisis of the ’70s. Following the guidelines of Marx, The End of Corporations follows the history of capitalism, from its birth, in order to examine the facts and laws that explain how it came about and where the current crisis could come to an end.
This presentation will look at the General Law of Capitalist Forms of Accumulation and their relevance to the underlying global economic crisis that took place in 2007 and what tendencies there are for a similar or more profound crisis than that of 11 years ago.
Daniel Campos was born in Argentina. Previously he was the congressional representative of the United Left Block for the Province of Buenos. Daniel has more than 35 years of uninterrupted militancy as a Marxist and the Argentinian left, along with a long background of trade union and political struggle. In addition, he has written a number of Marxist economic books including The End of Corporations, Toward Theory of Crisis, and The Imperialism Today.
