Description - Social Economy by Clark Everling

Contrary to much Marxist thought, the author does not view socialism as an antithesis to capitalism, and in this text argues that socialism is, among other things an objective development of capitalism. As capitalism develops it creates the premises for social development which are also the bases for a socialist and democratic construction of society. Drawing on economics, urban geography, political theory and Marxism, the text examines the evolution of capitalism from its early industrial to its present urban and global forms. How Marx understood the economy as a unity of production, distribution, exchange and consumption engaged in social reproduction is also considered. The contradictory evolution of US corporations and urban development from 1945 to the present is explored. The author argues that urban space involves requirements for social and individual reproduction which extend well beyond limits inherent in transnational corporate private appropriation. Using his arguments, the author makes the case that economic expansion can now best be secured by forms of development that take us beyond the limits of capitalism and point towards a democratic and socialist society.
