Capitalism in Crisis and Its Alternatives: A Conference Report

Capitalism in Crisis and Its Alternatives: A Conference Report

A recent three-day conference in New Delhi brought together leading radical scholars with their perspectives on the global crisis and opportunities for radical transformations. While there was agreement that the crisis is a serious challenge to the hegemony of the United States and the present architecture of international capital, there was also soul-searching of how to build radical alternatives to the current political and economic systems. It was also a rare occasion to engage with major Marxist scholars from an anti-Stalinist perspective.

United States President Barack Obama’s recent visit to New Delhi coincided with another significant event in the political and academic history of the city – an international conference on “The Global Crisis and Hegemonic Dilemmas” on 8, 9 and 10 November 2010, which saw the participation of leading left wing political and economic experts from around the world.
