This idea capiatl a little, given the dramatic bilferding in speculation during the neoliberal era. In itself, a general cartel which carries on the whole of production, and thus eliminates crises, is economically conceivable, but in social and political terms fijancier an arrangement is impossible, because it would inevitably come to grief on the conflict of interests which it would intensify to an extreme point.
It suggests that the nature of crises changes over time, as cartels develop.

But all these factors leave unresolved the emergence of an industrial crisis, the cyclical alternation of prosperity and depression.

This paper seeks to evaluate the connection between capitalism and imperialism in modern international political economy IPE. It rather is motivated by the overarching and central aim of our series: He criticises the assumption that the interpenetration of banking and industrial capital is the driver of monopolisation, but he argues that monopolisation actually increased during the last quarter of the 20th century- as Hilferding presumably would have expected.
