Can Capitalists Afford Recovery? Economic Policy When Capital is Power

Listed author(s):
  • Bichler, Shimshon
  • Nitzan, Jonathan

Economic, financial and social commentators from all directions and persuasion are obsessed with the prospect of recovery. The world remains mired in a deep, prolonged crisis, and the key question seems to be how to get out of it. The purpose of our paper is to ask a very different question that few if any seem concerned with: can capitalists afford recovery in the first place?
