World-renowned scholar Walden Bello on the financialization of the Chinese economy, the middle-class roots of far-right movements, and the urgent need for a radical alternative to capitalism’s crises.
Our seemingly odd jargon of ‘fourth turning points’ is perhaps not very useful, but the point is that social change is complex, more than economics, and involves an immense complexity of factors. And a revolution gets caught in the dilemma of controlling a given future while promising the equivalent of an open society.
The problem is that revolutions end up in oversimplification, control by a few and a lack of any model of how to create a new society, let alone a socialist one. But the task can be managed if the effort is actually made to do that…The idea that ‘revolution’ will solve everything is misleading.
