8. Citizenship and Human Rights
Summary: The object is to assess the validity, in the light of current economic development, of the epistemology structuring different historical interpretations linking capitalism, unfreedom and primitive accumulation. Conventional wisdom is that-regarding the incompatibility between capitalism and unfreedom -an unbroken continuity links Marxism to Adam Smith, Malthus, Mill and Max Weber. Challenging this, it is argued Marxism accepts that, where class struggle is global, capitalist producers employ workers who are unfree. The reasons are traced to the conceptualization by Smith of Labour as value, by Hegel of Labour as property and by Marx of Labour-power as commodity that can be bought/sold from this stems the free/unfree distincti on informing the process of becoming being, remaining and acting as a proletariat

Content: 1. Understanding the limits and Decay of
the Capitalist Mode of Production 2. Capitalism as an Adaptive System 3. The Systemic Turn in Capitalist Political
Economy 4. The Era of Feedback From Entropy 5. Militarism and State Terrorism as a
Response to Crisis 6. Organisation of the Twenty- First
Century 7. Contradictions in the Contemporary
Phase of Imperialist Governance and the Forces foe Change Within it
Summary: The project of applying general systems theory to social sciences is crucial in today's crisis when social and ecological systems clash. This book concretely demonstrates the necessity of a Marxist approach to this challenge, notably in asserting agency (struggle) as against determinism. It similarly shows how Marxism can be reinvigorated from a systems perspective. Drawing on his experience in both international systems and low-input agriculture, Biel explores the interaction of social and physical systems, using the conceptual tools of thermodynamics and information. He reveals the early twenty- first century as a period when capitalism starts parasitising on the chaos it itself creates, notably in the link between the two sides of imperialism: militarism (the 'war on terror') and speculative finance capital.

11. Trajectories of Accumulation or ‘Transition’ to Capitalism?
Summary: The essays collected here straddle four decades of work in both historiography and Marxist theory, combining source- based historical work in a wide range of languages with sophisticated discussion of Marxs categories. Key themes include the distinctions that are crucial to restoring complexity to the Marxist notion of a mode of production; the emergence of medieval relations of production; the origins of capitalism; the dichotomy between free and unfree labour; and essays in agrarian history that range widely from Byzantine Egypt to 19th-century colonialism. The essays demonstrate the importance of reintegrating theory with history and of bringing history back into historical materialism. An introductory chapter ties the collection together and shows how historical materialists can develop an alternative to Marxs Asiatic mode of production. Jairus Banaji, spent most of his academic life at Oxford. He has been a Research Associate in the Department of Development Studies, SOAS, at University of London, for the past several years. He is the author of Agrarian Change in Late Antiquity

Summary: National decline is typically blamed on special interests from the demand side of politics corrupting a country's institutions. The usual demand-side suspects include crony capitalists, consumer activists, economic elites and labor unions. Less attention is given to government insiders on the supply side of politics - rulers, elected officials, bureaucrats and public employees. In autocracies and democracies, government insiders have the motive, means and opportunity to co-opt political power for their benefit and at the expense of national well-being. Many storied empires have succumbed to such inside jobs. Today, they imperil countries as different as China and the United States. Democracy - government by the people - does not ensure government for the people. Understanding how government insiders use their power to subvert the public interest - and how these negative consequences can be mitigated - is the topic of this book by Mark A. Zupan" National decline is typically blamed on special interests from the demand side of politics corrupting a county's institutions.

Summary: The concepts of quality management have been progressively interpreted and stylized by various practitioners over time, particularly through specific successful applications of its use. Its current predominant application has been narrowed even more through the focused practice of Lean Six Sigma. Through that narrowing, it has largely failed and given up on the application of quality practice to entire organizational systems—even though they are essential to designing and sustaining quality practice over time. This book corrects that problem and introduces a broad new framework for system management, including practical tools and guidance for its use. It provides the long-promised "profound knowledge of systems" and shows how structured systems can unify and align quality practices throughout an entire organization. In addition, it introduces a framework for objectively measuring the maturity of systems and processes to provide an organizational quality scorecard, essential for sustainability.

In this book, the reader will find out 'What financial education is... really.'
