Globalisation: Combined and Uneven Capitalist Development

Elif Çağlı

2 June 2005



Reality and ideology

Capitalism is a global economic system

Need for expansion to outside markets

Growing problems

Stagnation and accumulation tendency

The law of combined and uneven development

İnequality in inequality

Inequaliy in distribution of surplus-value

Holds backward countries as they were?

Deterioration of the distribution of income

Impasse of petty-bourgeois critics

Does colonialism rise again

Beware of distortion

Ambidextrous moves of capital

A new stage beyond imperialism?

Nation-state being exceeded?

Declining tendency of clash of arms?

Struggle for hegemony

Period of prolonged crisis

End to empire of lies!
