Theory of Monopoly Capitalism

Front Cover
Monthly Review Press, Jan 1, 1986 - Business & Economics - 280 pages
While orthodox economics takes account of the preeminent role of the giant, monopolistic corporation under capitalism only in passing, John Bellamy Foster's new study belongs to a distinguished tradition in Marxian social science which sees the rise of concentrated capital as the fundamental aspect of accumulation in the twentieth century, accounting for the tendency toward economic stagnation, helping to explain the growth of militarism and imperialism, and complicating the problem of radical social transformation.
