Darimon, bancos e crédito: notas sobre os Grundrisse e a transição para o socialismo


  • Eduardo da Motta e Albuquerque



Darimon’s book - De la réforme des banques – is the starting point of Grundrisse. This paper presents its structure and discusses how Marx’s critiques are part of his elaboration on the role of credit in capitalism and in the transition towards socialism. Marx’s trajectory from Grundrisse to Das Kapital is summarized: initially there is the critique to Darimon, finally there is a strong but very open statement: credit is a “powerful lever” in the transition towards socialism. This statement is a key topic of a research agenda on the transition to socialism.
