Through no capitalist gates

Capitalism in the canonical sense of the word has ceased to exist where it is in the newest stories most actively developed - in the West. After all, it is difficult to call a situation capitalism when the state allocates its own funds to “rescue” private banks, and even by the method of additional activation of the printing press.

And this is exactly what is happening in the United States of America, where first Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and then President Joe Biden, announced virtually direct state intervention in private business associated with failed banks, including Silicon Valley.



Further evidence that what is happening has nothing to do with the methods of classical capitalism is Biden's statement that the management of the banks, which allowed the collapse on the stock exchange, "will be punished." The American administration is going to "punish" the holders of private capital for doing business in a way that the state would not like. And the American administration is going to pour freshly printed dollars into the "correction" in order to then take these amounts out of the pockets of taxpayers. This is no longer in any capitalist gates ...

That is, the Western world has entered a new era, when, in addition to the imposed "non-traditional" values ​​in society, culture and religion, it now adds non-traditional values ​​for capitalism. A complete revolution, after which what?.. Expropriation of the expropriators? Although this already exists, for example, with the “honest” seizure in the United States or Great Britain of the assets of Russian oligarchs, who at one time enriched themselves, not without deception of millions of Russians, and transferred their funds abroad. Phantasmagoria.

By the way, today it became known that one of the largest banks in Europe, the Swiss Credit Suisse, is going to be taken out of the crisis by a takeover by another bank - also the Swiss UBS. This is being done against the backdrop of the fact that Credit Suisse depositors withdrew more than $4 billion from their accounts in US currency over the past 40 days alone.

        And what about "non-traditional relations", "non-traditional capitalism"? The most ordinary capitalism has passed into the stage of imperialism. Lenin wrote about this a hundred years ago in his work Imperialism as the Highest Stage of Capitalism.
        Reflections are also presented from Mikhail Leontiev in the program "However" on the "First".

        And they also found the "expert" Leontiev, and laughter and sin.)))

            You don’t even have a superficial view of the question, you have a look into nowhere and on its basis you are trying to draw some conclusions. I'm not suggesting that you study the issue, but you should at least familiarize yourself with it.

            Your Russophobe Pogonyalovo Tyapkin-Lyapkin, the last Pogonyalovo Lenin, didn’t do anything, didn’t create, didn’t organize, didn’t open. In the work you mentioned about Imperialism, he only rewrote another Russophobe, Marx. There's all sorts of some description of the psychological characteristics of a subhuman, in animal form, with the conclusion that all crimes are normal for him. So there is nothing surprising in this if a society lives according to material laws, where there is always a DECEIT TO THE NEAR, falling out of the commandments of the Ruler, sent to man at one time for his reason and categorically denied by the burry and his accomplices, who built their false teaching on the ancient slogan of Separation of people and Rule, who themselves recognize that a kind of socialism grows out of developed capitalism, at its last stage of imperialism. Rus', killed by the Bolsheviks, did not achieve this quality then, however, it fell under the satanic experiment, today the United States is like in developed capitalism, but does not want to be killed, only others. We should understand this simple information and try to improve the situation in our country, which, to the delight of all the small and large Russophobes of the world, does not happen. We remember everything, but we do not draw conclusions for correction. Like, Tyapkin knows!!! It would be nice to take him out of the sacred Russian place and remember him as the greatest pest of the Russian world, only for the benefit of his salvation. Or should it not happen? No one but us will do it, but first you need to understand its necessity. SALVATION!!! Landon with Israel and China will definitely not save us. Only themselves.

        What is "traditional capitalism"? Is this the image that Karl Marx "captured" in his "Capital"? So then there was the era of the "childhood" of capitalism, and over the past time it has grown and developed, and in many countries in different ways.
        And one should not be surprised that after going through so many "trials" by crises in the United States, it began to take a form in which the State itself, that is, the state system, became a "player" in this "field".
        In any case, this model turned out to be more viable than the more "progressive" Soviet socialism

            And who told you that it has already been built? The construction of any economic formation is endless. If today it is imperialism, then tomorrow it will be something else, but based on the same principle of private ownership of the means of production. The highest stage of capitalism is somewhere in infinity. Unless capitalism is replaced by another economic formation, such as socialism. In which the highest stage is also in infinity - communism.

              Well, you will also say, in infinity.))) The highest stage of capitalism is very well known and described. The highest stage of imperialism (as a subsequent stage of capitalism) is fascism, in one form or another. It is not very important that Hitler's Nazism is either Musolinin-type fascism, or "democracy" in Chilean (the time of Pinochet), they have a number of common patterns. There is only one meaning - everything to corporations, to the working people - ruin and death. The whole world today is sliding into this pit, some faster, some slower, but everyone is rolling there.

                Dear Mr. aleksejkabanets, you are also wrong.
                1. Fascism is not a form of capitalism, but a form of government = government. The form of state structure has no direct relation to the form of capitalism itself. Fascism, as a form of government, is a consequence of the crisis of capitalism. This is precisely what has been observed in history, cf. Italy, Germany at the beginning of the century, Chile in the 70s - the crisis, and the coming of the socialists to power, etc. Capitalism can now return to this form of management again, primarily in the geyropa, but it is possible that something similar can also be observed in the United States.
                2. Lenin correctly noted in his work that as capitalism develops, industrial and financial capital coalesce with the emergence of a financial-industrial oligarchy. Now just in the West is the dominance of financial-industrial oligarchic capitalism with the separation of financial-industrial monopolies, to which various smaller fry like B. Gates have joined, but who will immediately be thrown out of there in the presence of a serious financial crisis. Hence the task, to destroy this financial-industrial oligarchic capitalism with its monopoly. This is what Russia is now trying to do with China, working on the transition from oligarchy and monopoly to a multipolar economic system.

                  Fascism, imperialism, oligarchy - all mixed up in a bunch - people, horses. The more incomprehensible and confusing, the clearer and clearer .. it's bad that a lot of people give in and follow such calls leading nowhere. Mraks-Lenin is the same case. The usual sect, according to modern blogging. Only here comes the loot, where countries and peoples disappear. It was Great Rus', where is it? There was a great Russian people, where is he? Today the Russian Federation, Ukraine, raseyantsy, Ukrainians, but the stage of division is in the process. In science, such an experiment is recognized as unsuccessful, in a sect it is not so. A continuation is required .. Apparently, all the same, the loot is a lot of power - the true result of that experiment.

        the classical model of capitalism (Keynesianism), to which the United States is now returning.

        What does return mean? Yes, for 20 years they have been trying to stimulate the economy with injections directly on it .. But the trick is that Keynes wrote his work for a producing industrial economy. And not at all for today's speculative-financial. And as a logical development - any stuffing of money leads to their immediate either being sucked to the stock exchanges, or to the purchase of goods in the same China .. And by no means to stimulate their own industry. Who needs it now - fiddling with production, when the loot - can be made right out of thin air? The consequences are obvious .. The classic does not work in the current conditions .. It only gets worse from his recipes.

          I am not an economist, but I would like to note that not a single process in society and not a single structure of society (political, economic, or whatever economic) does not correspond to theories from smart treatises.
          All theories are adjusted to the situation and are an attempt to idealize the situation with an attempt to structure what happened.

            Any theory is based on practice. For example, Newton's law is also "adjusted" .... And that the theory of mechanics is not needed?

            By the way, the ORDER is not necessarily the order of the elites. Marxism is the order of proletarian revolutions in Europe. But the bourgeoisie, which united all over the world, took advantage of his conclusions.

      Why be surprised? Everything goes on as usual. The whole essence of capitalism boils down to the formula:
      money - goods - money
      And it is clear that the natural desire of every capitalist is to get as much money as possible. Wherein product the most troublesome part. Production, quality, demand and so on, it's such a headache. Therefore, ideally, they tend to abandon this very product altogether. For example, working with the formulas:
      money - currency speculation - money
      or
      money - credit - money
      As a milder option, the transfer of production to third countries to reduce its cost, or focus on trade in foreign goods.
      And the fact that the situation is driven to the point of absurdity is of no interest to capitalism. It parasitizes commodity production and kills it. Actually, inflation is a consequence of the withering away of commodity production.

      Michael is talking nonsense. There have always been such industries / companies that received support from the state during a crisis (even the term is too big to fail - too big to sink). Known since the 70s for memory - Chrysler (and Lee Iacocca still complained that before him many people receive subsidies, but they don’t want to give the auto industry) and the WB coal industry, which was dispersed by M. Thatcher. The practice is as follows: subsidies are usually repayable and paid (as in the case of Chrysler) and are based on a restructuring plan. Otherwise, the industry is closed (like coal in the World Bank).
