This collection of articles is a sequel to Harpal Brar’s 2007 book Imperialism – the Eve of the Socialist Revolution of the Proletariat. In that volume, the author predicted that the recent economic recovery was bound to be followed by a sharp crash.
Sure enough, within three months of the book’s publication, the present crisis of overproduction broke out with a virulence never before seen – worse even than the 1929 crash – bringing imperialism’s financial institutions to a near meltdown.
This volume traces the origin and progress of this latest and deepest-ever crisis of the capitalist system, which has laid waste the economies of capitalist countries throughout the world and ruined the lives of hundreds of millions of working people.
By Harpal Brar and Ella Rule
