“Ten verge of collapse develops his technique via a scientific integration of temporality and spatiality, paying targeted recognition to the logics of accumulation and territorial clash, the calls for of the accelerated replica of capital and people of the self-reproduction of person states. this can be attainable due to the cautious contrast among economics and politics and a rigorous research in their operational autonomy and fabric interdependence inside of a global order ruled in several methods through the good judgment of capital accumulation.

“This paintings is a vital contribution to present debates on modernity and a powerful attempt to mix theoretical, ancient and sociological views. Tobias ten verge of collapse exhibits that geopolitical research is an critical corrective to paintings on different types of capitalism, and a good antidote to either liberal and Marxist types of monetary reductionism.”

"In this encyclopaedic paintings Tobias ten verge of collapse supplies a cutting-edge overview of present makes an attempt looking to bridge the space among the self-discipline of diplomacy and political financial system theories of capital and the nation. This hole, which the classical theories of imperialism in simple terms lined incompletely, this day back calls for the eye of all these brooding about the chances for reordering overseas family members in the direction of an equitable format."

Example text

They emphasise that imperialism cannot be reduced to the policies of individual governments, but rather comprises a specific stage in the development of capitalism. The ‘problems of valorisation’ [Verwertungsschwierigkeiten], which each author theorises differently, motivates capital to expand internationally with the help of its respective nation state so as to realise higher profits. National economic competition is thus reproduced at the international level and ultimately transforms into political competition between states.

They form the overall context that integrates people into a relatively fixed order. Mann accepts in principle that each of these four sources of power is equivalent and, on that basis, posits a highly fragmented world.

Only a portion of investments was made in the newly acquired colonial regions. 11 Too often, the term ‘monopoly’ is not defined in precise enough terms. As a rule, monopolies, or more specifically, oligopolies hold a dominant position within one branch of the economy, but not in all of them. Capitalist development puts an existing oligopoly at risk of losing its position. 12 From this perspective, whether or not competition will be suspended is wrongly seen as being dependent on the will of individual monopoly capitalists.
