My answer, Michael:
A theory whose diagnosis of crisis either gives confidence that it
will be self-correcting or that the state can correct it with
interventions that remain with the structural parameters of the
system, so to speak. See for example Mattick Economic Crisis and
Crisis Theory. I noticed that there is even a web edition now
