greeceWith a last-ditch, compromise deal worked out with the European Union, the Syriza coalition government of Greece led by Alexis Tsipras has bought some time for its anti-austerity program, but still faces massive challenges. The challenges come not just from the European Union, in which Angela Merkel’s Germany has clearly shown its hand as the most powerful force in European capitalism. Syriza’s climbdown from key parts of its radical program may also test the staying power of its radical wing, especially the Left Platform, led by the economy minister Panagiotis Lafazanis, and the economist, turned MP, Costas Lapavitsas.

jrnlSummary: Although few questions are more important than whether a viable alternative to capitalism is possible, radical theory has tended to shy away from directly engaging the issue—even when the theoretical and practical cost of the claim that “there is no alternative to capitalism” is acknowledged. This essay argues that the barrier towards envisioning a viable alternative needs to begin by revisiting Marx’s critique of capitalism as well as his many criticisms of the socialist and communist tendencies of his time. Originally appeared in Praktyka Teoretyczna (Poland) in 2014.
