Abstract

Since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, capitalism has had virtually unfettered access to the entire world. It is legitimate, therefore, to talk of global capitalism when we consider the economic practices that currently define our material life. While it would be impossible to give anything here but a misleadingly cryptic view of how capitalism operates, there are nonetheless a few general points that should be made that will help orient our analysis.
