Das Landnahmetheorem: eine kritische Würdigung
Schlagworte:Landnahme, Privatisierung, Deregulierung, Krise
The “Landnahme”-Theory tries not only to explain the processes of privatization, deregulation and financialization of the economy since the crisis of the 1970s. Following Rosa Luxemburg’s “Accumulation of Capital” and Marx’ remarks on “primitive accumulation”, David Harvey and Klaus Dörre develop a heuristic framework for the interpretation of capitalist dynamics and reproduction through economic crisis. This article reconstructs their theories, examines their empirical plausibility and questions gaps in the Political Economy of contemporary capitalism.
