While most mainstream commentators view the crisis that provoked the Great Recession as having passed, these essays from Richard Wolff paint a far less rosy picture. Drawing attention to the extreme downturn in most of capitalism's old centres, the unequal growth in its new centres and the resurgence of a global speculative bubble, Wolff - in his uniquely accessible style - makes the case that the crisis should be grasped not as a passing moment, but as an evolving stage in capitalism's history.

"The New York Times magazine has described Richard Wolff as "probably America's most prominent Marxist economist". And that is probably not an exaggeration in the description of this emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and visiting professor at the New School University in New York." Michael Roberts, author of The Long Depression
