Notas sobre a crise de 2008: transição para uma nova fase do capitalismo?


  • Eduardo Albuquerque



Metamorphoses of capitalism provide the theoretical background for an investigation of present systemic turbulence. The starting point is the evaluation of the "unprecedented" governmental intervention to contain the 2008 crisis. The crisis and the measures taken to contain it affect five structural changes that pervade the capitalist system. This manuscript integrates those changes to investigate the specificities of today's systemic turbulence. The identification of those specificities puts forward two questions, the first related to the capitalism's instability and propensity to crisis during this phase, the second concerned with the duration of current phase of systemic turbulence.
