Hello everybody!
We --myself plus 8 undergraduate students on scholarships from the federal
government-- have recently engajed in the preparation of a course on the
political economy of globalization for the CUT-Central Unica dos
Trabalhadores. Among the many activities we are planning as part of our
ongoing research are open seminars to discuss books that could help us to
better understand today's tendencies and processes at work within the
world capitalism system. I've been rereading Itoh's World Economic Crisis
and Japanese Capitalism and it seems to me that this book is a good
contribution in face of so much ideology surrounding the topic of
globalization. Does any one on the list know of any other recent tittles
which would contribute towards an understanding of the nature of world
capitalism today?
My warmest regards to everyone on the list. Paulo.
