Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library

Political economy of globalization, financialization, labor migration, and majoritarian alienation

Globalization maximizes free trade and capital flows, while continuing to resist labor migration caused by it.  Globalization is facilitated by the dominance of finance capital, and the untethering of transnational corporations from a national base.  But while colonialism caused the internal disarticulation of the periphery, globalization brings about the internal disarticulation of the metropolitan center.  This plus multifaceted demographic transitions are at the root of the social marginalization of less educated majoritarian communities, creating preconditions for the rise of fascism.

Sharat G. Lin is a research fellow at the San José Peace and Justice Center.  He writes and lectures on global political economy, labor migration, the Middle East and South Asia, and public health.

About Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library
