The Crisis of Capitalist Rule

William I Robinson in conversation with professor Hilbourne A. Watson to discuss the release of Robinson's new book, Global Civil War: Capitalism Post-Pandemic.

 

Global Civil War provides a big-picture account of how the coronavirus pandemic and new digital technologies have drastically transformed capitalism and the entire global economy and society. Analyzing the concentration of power and control in the hands of corporate conglomerates, tech giants, megabanks, and the military-industrial complex, the book documents the extent of unprecedented global inequalities as the mass of humanity faces violent dispossession and uncertain survival.
