Workers of the World …: The ‘Economic Corporate Moment’ of Contemporary World Politics



In the previous chapter Jeffrey Harrod provided an account of his and Robert Cox’s approach to the study of unprotected work through ‘patterns of social relations of production’ (Harrod, 1987; Cox, 1987). This was in part a retrospective account and in part a consideration of possible future developments of the approach. He also made the case that his neomaterialist approach was better equipped to analyze poverty as a social force of world politics than the approaches that dominate at present. He made this case through a critique of both Marxism and fashionable approaches that are characterized by ‘work-empty’ discourses.
