Analysis: The politics of a double crisis

119

jul 08

 

“Auguries For A ‘Vile’ Decade” was the headline of a Financial Times column by its veteran commentator Samuel Brittan in May. He was quoting Michael Saunders, a Citigroup analyst, on the prospects for British capitalism, but generalised the prediction to “the old industrial West as a whole”.

 

Analysis: Britain’s resurgent Tories

The Tories were crowing after May’s local elections and the Crewe & Nantwich parliamentary by-election. With 44 percent of the local election vote, victory in the London mayoral election and a 17.6 percent swing away from Labour to take Crewe & Nantwich, they are convinced they will win the general election set to take place in two years time.

 

Analysis: Italian lessons

The victory for the coalition around Silvio Berlusconi in Italy is much more serious than the Tory gains in Britain’s local elections. It has produced a government in which the hard right have been making the running. The scale of the defeat suffered by the left is such that there is no Communist or socialist representation in parliament for the first time since the Second World War.

 

Panos Garganas: Analysis: Interview: Greece—a very different picture

Panos Garganas, editor of the Greek newspaper Workers Solidarity, spoke to International Socialism about the country’s strike wave

 

Charlie Kimber: Analysis: Livingstone pays the price for "triangulation"

In broad terms the story is easily told. Labour’s Ken Livingstone was defeated as Mayor of London by Conservative Boris Johnson because the Labour Party is on the slide and the right in British politics has got its act together.

 

Carlo Morelli: Behind the world food crisis

jul 08

 

It is not often that the Financial Times warns of impending revolution unless governments act to stem the consequences of untrammelled market capitalism, but that is exactly what Alan Beattie argued in April 2008.

 

John Molyneux: More than opium: Marxism and religion

119

51

jul 08

 

About 20 years ago I spoke on “Marxism and religion” at the Socialist Workers Party Easter Rally in Skegness. I began, roughly, with the words, “Today, in Britain, religion—fortunately—is not a major political issue.” Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. Today religion, or rather one religion in particular, namely Islam, is at the centre of political debate.

 

Charlie Hore: China, Tibet and the left

119

75

jul 08

 

The riots and protests in Tibet earlier this year were the most significant since China’s takeover in the 1950s. Together with the protests that have accompanied the Olympic torch relay around the world, they have shown that Tibetan nationalism remains a potent force and that opposition to the Chinese occupation is still widespread. But the international left has been divided on whether to support the Tibetan protesters.

 

Leo Zeilig: Zimbabwe: imperialism, hypocrisy and fake nationalism

119

jul 08

 

One striking feature of Zimbabwe’s crisis has been the vocal support of the British and US governments for “democratic change”.

 

Chris Nineham: Benjamin’s emergency Marxism

John Rose: Karl Marx, Abram Leon and the Jewish Question—a reappraisal

119

121

jul 08

 

At some point, quite early on in our revolutionary “careers”, Jewish students of the 1968 generation had to confront On the Jewish Question written by the young Karl Marx in 1843.

 

Jim Kincaid: The world economy—a critical comment

119

jul 08

 

Chris Harman has invited comment on his recent writings on the world economy and there is certainly much for Marxists to debate. We are confronted with a global economy, hugely uneven to be sure, but which in 2007 was producing no less than 25 percent more goods and services than just six years earlier. However, many on the left, including Harman, believe that the basic tendency of the system remains inflected towards stagnation in profits and rates of accumulation—as it has been, in their view, since the 1970s.

 

Chris Harman: Misreadings and misconceptions

119

159

jul 08

 

We cannot understand the system we live in or how to fight it simply by the repetition of slogans. We need serious analysis and debate. For that reason, I welcome Jim Kincaid’s rejoinder to my articles in recent issues of International Socialism. But I think it is wrong in some important respects. He misreads what has been happening to the system, does not fully grasp theoretically the dynamic of capitalism and misconstrues some of the things I have said.
