Robbert Brenner: The Boom and the Bubble

Forord

Den amerikanske historiker Robert Brenner skrev i 1998 et helt nummer af tidsskriftet New Left Review: “Uneven development and the long downturn: the advanced capitalist economies from boom to stagnation, 1950-1998 (nr. 229, may-june 1998, 265 s.). Er også kendt under omslagstitlen: The economics of global turbulence: a special report on the world economy, 1950-98. Efterfulgt af to bøger: The boom and the bubble: the US in the world economy (Verso, 2002, 303 sider) + The economics of global turbulence (Verso, 2006, 370 sider).

Analysen har rejst en omfattende debat om marxistisk kriseteori og den
kapitalistiske verdensøkonomis historiske og aktuelle udvikling. Vi har her samlet noget af den internationale venstrefløjs debat fra tidsskrifter og internettet. (En del af tidsskrifterne kan lånes på biblioteket – bla. på Arbejderbevægelsens Bibliotek og Arkiv).

Robert Brenner er professor i historie på UCLA, Californien og forfatter til vigtige artikler/bøger om overgangen fra feudalisme til kapitalisme. Han er desuden medlem af den amerikanske socialistiske organisation Solidarity, og medredaktør på deres tidsskrift [Against
the Current->http://www.solidarity-us.org/atc].

Foreword

The US historian Robert Brenner wrote in 1998 a special issue of the journal New Left Review: “Uneven development and the long downturn: the advanced capitalist economies from boom to stagnation, 1950-1998” (no. 229, may-june 1998, 265 pages), also known under the title of the cover: The economics of global turbulence: a special report on the world ecoomy, 1950-98. Succeeded by two books: The boom and the bubble: the US in the world economy (Verso, 2002, 303 pages) + The economics of global turbulence (Verso, 2006, 370 sider).

The analysis has led to a huge debate on the Marxist theory of crisis and the historical and present development of the capitalist world economy. We have collected some of the debate from the international left, as published in journals and on the Internet.

Robert Brenner is a professor in history at UCLA in California, and is the author of important articles and books on the transition from feudalism to capitalism. Besides that he is a member of the US socialist organisation Solidarity, and is a co-editor of their analytical journal Against the Current.
