    schema:description "POLITICAL ECONOMY. In The Implosion of Capitalism renowned political economist Samir Amin analyses the contours of a world in crisis. He connects the key events of our times - financial crisis, Eurozone implosion, the emerging BRIC nations and the rise of political Islam - in a coherent and historically based account. In light of these major crises and tensions, Amin updates and modifies the classical definitions of social classes, political parties, social movements and ideology. In doing so he lays bare the reality of monopoly capitalism in its general, global form. In a bravura conclusion, Amin argues that the current capitalist system is not viable and that implosion is unavoidable. The Implosion of Capitalism makes clear the stark choice facing humanity - either a more humane global order or the continuation of rampant and chaotic capital accumulation."@en ;
