Essays on the Political Economy of Late Development

Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit.

Economists , historians , political economists and sociologists have adopted different perspectives in their analyses of capitalism and have recognized various forms of it in practice. These include laissez-faire or free-market capitalism , state capitalism and welfare capitalism. Different forms of capitalism feature varying degrees of free markets , public ownership , [8] obstacles to free competition and state-sanctioned social policies.

The degree of competition in markets and the role of intervention and regulation as well as the scope of state ownership vary across different models of capitalism. Most of the existing capitalist economies are mixed economies that combine elements of free markets with state intervention and in some cases economic planning.

Market economies have existed under many forms of government and in many different times, places and cultures. Modern capitalist societies—marked by a universalization of money -based social relations , a consistently large and system-wide class of workers who must work for wages the proletariat and a capitalist class which owns the means of production—developed in Western Europe in a process that led to the Industrial Revolution.

Capitalist systems with varying degrees of direct government intervention have since become dominant in the Western world and continue to spread. Constant economic growth is a characteristic tendency of capitalist economies. Critics of capitalism argue that it concentrates power in the hands of a minority capitalist class that exists through the exploitation of the majority working class and their labor; prioritizes profit over social good, natural resources and the environment; is an engine of inequality, corruption and economic instabilities; and that many are not able to access its purported benefits and freedoms, such as freely investing.

Supporters argue that it provides better products and innovation through competition, promotes pluralism and decentralization of power, disperses wealth to people who are able to invest in useful enterprises based on market demands, allows for a flexible incentive system where efficiency and sustainability are priorities to protect capital, creates strong economic growth, and yields productivity and prosperity that greatly benefit society.

The term "capitalist", meaning an owner of capital , appears earlier than the term "capitalism" and dates to the midth century. Capitale emerged in the 12th to 13th centuries to refer to funds, stock of merchandise, sum of money or money carrying interest. Benjamin Disraeli used the term in his work Sybil. The initial use of the term "capitalism" in its modern sense is attributed to Louis Blanc in "What I call 'capitalism' that is to say the appropriation of capital by some to the exclusion of others" and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon in "Economic and social regime in which capital, the source of income, does not generally belong to those who make it work through their labor".

Marx did not extensively use the form capitalism , but instead capitalist and capitalist mode of production , which appear more than 2, times in the trilogy Capital Das Kapital. In the English language , the term "capitalism" first appears, according to the Oxford English Dictionary OED , in , in the novel The Newcomes by novelist William Makepeace Thackeray , where the word meant "having ownership of capital".

Capitalism in its modern form can be traced to the emergence of agrarian capitalism and mercantilism in the early Renaissance , in city-states like Florence.

Simple commodity exchange and consequently simple commodity production, which is the initial basis for the growth of capital from trade, have a very long history. Arabs promulgated capitalist economic policies such as free trade and banking. Their use of Indo-Arabic numerals facilitated bookkeeping. These innovations migrated to Europe through trade partners in cities such as Venice and Pisa.

The Italian mathematician Fibonacci traveled the Mediterranean talking to Arab traders and returned to popularize the use of Indo-Arabic numerals in Europe. Capital and commercial trade thus existed for much of history, but until recent centuries it did not lead to industrialization or dominate the production process of society.

That required a set of conditions, including specific technologies of mass production, the ability to independently and privately own and trade in means of production, a class of workers willing to sell their labor power for a living, a legal framework promoting commerce, a physical infrastructure allowing the circulation of goods on a large scale and security for private accumulation. Many of these conditions do not currently exist in many Third World countries, although there is plenty of capital and labor.

The obstacles for the development of capitalist markets are therefore less technical and more social, cultural and political. The economic foundations of the feudal agricultural system began to shift substantially in 16th-century England as the manorial system had broken down and land began to become concentrated in the hands of fewer landlords with increasingly large estates.

Instead of a serf -based system of labor, workers were increasingly employed as part of a broader and expanding money-based economy. The system put pressure on both landlords and tenants to increase the productivity of agriculture to make profit; the weakened coercive power of the aristocracy to extract peasant surpluses encouraged them to try better methods, and the tenants also had incentive to improve their methods in order to flourish in a competitive labor market.

Terms of rent for land were becoming subject to economic market forces rather than to the previous stagnant system of custom and feudal obligation. By the early 17th century, England was a centralized state in which much of the feudal order of Medieval Europe had been swept away.

This centralization was strengthened by a good system of roads and by a disproportionately large capital city, London. The capital acted as a central market hub for the entire country, creating a very large internal market for goods, contrasting with the fragmented feudal holdings that prevailed in most parts of the Continent.

The economic doctrine prevailing from the 16th to the 18th centuries is commonly called mercantilism. Mercantilism was a system of trade for profit, although commodities were still largely produced by non-capitalist methods.

Accordingly, he argued that "not until was a competitive labor market established in England, hence industrial capitalism as a social system cannot be said to have existed before that date". England began a large-scale and integrative approach to mercantilism during the Elizabethan Era — It was written in the s and published in European merchants , backed by state controls, subsidies and monopolies , made most of their profits by buying and selling goods.

In the words of Francis Bacon , the purpose of mercantilism was "the opening and well-balancing of trade; the cherishing of manufacturers; the banishing of idleness; the repressing of waste and excess by sumptuary laws; the improvement and husbanding of the soil; the regulation of prices After the period of the proto-industrialization , the British East India Company and the Dutch East India Company , after massive contributions from the Mughal Bengal , [47] [48] inaugurated an expansive era of commerce and trade.

In the midth century a group of economic theorists, led by David Hume — [52] and Adam Smith — , challenged fundamental mercantilist doctrines — such as the belief that the world's wealth remained constant and that a state could only increase its wealth at the expense of another state.

During the Industrial Revolution , industrialists replaced merchants as a dominant factor in the capitalist system and effected the decline of the traditional handicraft skills of artisans , guilds and journeymen. Also during this period, the surplus generated by the rise of commercial agriculture encouraged increased mechanization of agriculture. Industrial Britain eventually abandoned the protectionist policy formerly prescribed by mercantilism. In the 19th century, Richard Cobden — and John Bright — , who based their beliefs on the Manchester School , initiated a movement to lower tariffs.

Capitalism was carried across the world by broader processes of globalization and by the beginning of the nineteenth century a series of loosely connected market systems had come together as a relatively integrated global system, in turn intensifying processes of economic and other globalization. Industrialization allowed cheap production of household items using economies of scale while rapid population growth created sustained demand for commodities.

Globalization in this period was decisively shaped by 18th-century imperialism. After the First and Second Opium Wars and the completion of the British conquest of India, vast populations of these regions became ready consumers of European exports. Also in this period, areas of sub-Saharan Africa and the Pacific islands were colonized.

The conquest of new parts of the globe, notably sub-Saharan Africa, by Europeans yielded valuable natural resources such as rubber , diamonds and coal and helped fuel trade and investment between the European imperial powers, their colonies and the United States:.

The inhabitant of London could order by telephone, sipping his morning tea, the various products of the whole earth, and reasonably expect their early delivery upon his doorstep. Militarism and imperialism of racial and cultural rivalries were little more than the amusements of his daily newspaper. What an extraordinary episode in the economic progress of man was that age which came to an end in August In this period, the global financial system was mainly tied to the gold standard.

The United Kingdom first formally adopted this standard in Soon to follow were Canada in , Newfoundland in , the United States and Germany de jure in New technologies, such as the telegraph , the transatlantic cable , the radiotelephone , the steamship and railway allowed goods and information to move around the world at an unprecedented degree.

In the period following the global depression of the s, the state played an increasingly prominent role in the capitalistic system throughout much of the world. The postwar boom ended in the late s and early s and the situation was worsened by the rise of stagflation.

Public and political interest began shifting away from the so-called collectivist concerns of Keynes's managed capitalism to a focus on individual choice, called "remarketized capitalism".

According to Harvard academic Shoshana Zuboff , a new genus of capitalism, surveillance capitalism monetizes data acquired through surveillance. Harvard Kennedy School economist Dani Rodrik distinguishes between three historical variants of capitalism: Capitalism 1. The relationship between democracy and capitalism is a contentious area in theory and in popular political movements.

The extension of adult male suffrage in 19th-century Britain occurred along with the development of industrial capitalism and democracy became widespread at the same time as capitalism, leading capitalists to posit a causal or mutual relationship between them.

Moderate critics argue that though economic growth under capitalism has led to democracy in the past, it may not do so in the future as authoritarian regimes have been able to manage economic growth using some of capitalism's competitive principles [72] [73] without making concessions to greater political freedom. Milton Friedman , one of the biggest supporters of the idea that capitalism promotes political freedom , argued that competitive capitalism allows economic and political power to be separate, ensuring that they do not clash with one another.

Moderate critics have recently challenged this, stating that the current influence lobbying groups have had on policy in the United States is a contradiction, given the approval of Citizens United. This has led people to question the idea that competitive capitalism promotes political freedom. The ruling on Citizens United allows corporations to spend undisclosed and unregulated amounts of money on political campaigns, shifting outcomes in favor of special interests and undermining true democracy.

As explained in Robin Hahnel 's writings, the centerpiece of the ideological defense of the free market system is the concept of economic freedom and that supporters equate economic democracy with economic freedom and claim that only the free market system can provide economic freedom. According to Hahnel, there are a few objections to the premise that capitalism offers freedom through economic freedom.

These objections are guided by critical questions about who or what decides whose freedoms are more protected. Often, the question of inequality is brought up when discussing how well capitalism promotes democracy. An argument that could stand is that economic growth can lead to inequality given that capital can be acquired at different rates by different people. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century , Thomas Piketty of the Paris School of Economics asserted that inequality is the inevitable consequence of economic growth in a capitalist economy and the resulting concentration of wealth can destabilize democratic societies and undermine the ideals of social justice upon which they are built.

States with capitalistic economic systems have thrived under political regimes deemed to be authoritarian or oppressive. Singapore has a successful open market economy as a result of its competitive, business-friendly climate and robust rule of law.

Nonetheless, it often comes under fire for its style of government which, though democratic and consistently one of the least corrupt, [78] operates largely under a one-party rule.

Furthermore, it does not vigorously defend freedom of expression as evidenced by its government-regulated press, and it is penchant for upholding laws protecting ethnic and religious harmony, judicial dignity and personal reputation. The private capitalist sector in the People's Republic of China has grown exponentially and thrived since its inception, despite having an authoritarian government.

Augusto Pinochet 's rule in Chile led to economic growth and high levels of inequality [79] by using authoritarian means to create a safe environment for investment and capitalism. Similarly, Suharto 's authoritarian reign and extirpation of the Communist Party of Indonesia allowed for the expansion of capitalism in Indonesia.

The term "capitalism" in its modern sense is often attributed to Karl Marx. However, Marx himself rarely used the term "capitalism" while it was used twice in the more political interpretations of his work, primarily authored by his collaborator Friedrich Engels. In the 20th century, defenders of the capitalist system often replaced the term "capitalism" with phrases such as free enterprise and private enterprise and replaced "capitalist" with rentier and investor in reaction to the negative connotations associated with capitalism.

In general, capitalism as an economic system and mode of production can be summarised by the following: [84]. In free market and laissez-faire forms of capitalism, markets are used most extensively with minimal or no regulation over the pricing mechanism. In mixed economies, which are almost universal today, [92] markets continue to play a dominant role, but they are regulated to some extent by the state in order to correct market failures , promote social welfare , conserve natural resources , fund defense and public safety or other rationale.

In state capitalist systems, markets are relied upon the least, with the state relying heavily on state-owned enterprises or indirect economic planning to accumulate capital. Supply is the amount of a good or service that is available for purchase or sale. Demand is the measure of value for a good that people are willing to buy at a given time. Prices tend to rise when demand for an available resource increases or its supply diminishes and fall with demand or when supply increases.

Competition arises when more than one producer is trying to sell the same or similar products to the same buyers. Adherents of the capitalist theory believe that competition leads to innovation and more affordable prices.

Monopolies or cartels can develop, especially if there is no competition.

Martin Luther and the different spirits of capitalism in Europe

A Muslim group met in Chicago on Sunday to rail against the evils of capitalism and to promote Shariah law. In the meanwhile, the number of Shariah courts in Britain has been growing, and not all of the people using those courts are Muslim. Hizb-ut Tahrir: The Muslim group Hizb-ut Tahrir held a conference in the ballroom at the Hilton in Oak Lawn on Sunday to blame capitalism for much of the suffering on the earth, including World Wars I and II, world poverty, violence in Iraq and Afghanistan, and even inner city drug use. The conference included videos and lectures by various speakers, as well as question and answer sessions. HT ultimately wants to see worldwide implementation of Shariah law and government control of major industries in order to cure the economic and social ills of the nations. Conference deputy spokesman Mohammed Malkawi denied that the group associates with terrorists and declared that HT favored using politics to achieve its purposes.

Growth and Change in Neoliberal Capitalism

Theology has been for centuries at the centre of the work of thinkers concerned with economic and social matters. From the very beginning of Christianity up to modern Political economy, a cross-fertilisation between theologia and oikonomia has occurred. Smith, Marx, Vico and Genovesi, for example, deployed theological languages and their theoretical systems were influenced by the theological debates. According to Benjamin [], capitalism is a new form of religion that calls for an exclusive form of worship and aims at replacing Jewish—Christian humanism.
