A new blog for a new era….

For the time being I will be blogging over at Finance Capital. This is a new blog project that I have been thinking about for some time.  I think the new global situation demands greater attention to the issues raised by finance capital.

As I point out there: 

The great global credit crisis of 2008 indicates how fragile the global capitalist system remains. At the heart of global capitalism is the creation of financial instruments that represent real economic activity. The institutions that manage these instruments shape the basic structure of the global economy. This blog aims to assess the impact of these institutions on global politics.

Feel free to join me over there or look around here for past posts.
