AU - Derluguian, Georgi. Bourguinat Henri, Éric Briys (2009), L’Arrogance de la finance. Yet it is not an adequate method for substantive sciences, which have a reality to explain, and particularly for a social science like economics, which seeks to explain economic systems. Although the reduction in the growth and profits rates that took place in the 1970s in the United States as well as the experience of stagflation amounted to a much smaller crisis than the Great Depression or the present global financial crisis, these historical new facts were enough to cause the collapse of the Bretton Woods system and to trigger financialization and the neoliberal or neoconservative counterrevolution. Finance-based capitalism dismantled the institutions and forgot the economic theories we learned after the Great Depression of the1930s; it recklessly deregulated financial markets and shunned Keynesian and developmentalist ideas. Kindleberger Charles P. (1989), Manias, Panics, and Crashes. This can be seen when price of stocks often change largely some time before news become public information rather than after. 28There are two immediate and rather irrational causes of the neoliberal dominance or hegemony since the 1980s: the fear of socialism and the transformation of neoclassical economics into mainstream economics. In other words, they created fictitious wealth – financialization – for the benefit of rentiers and financists. 40We are so used to thinking only in terms of the capitalist class and the working class that it is difficult to perceive the increasing share of the professional class and, within it, of the financists in contemporary knowledge or professional capitalism. Relying on free market practically has failed in the past and now central banks set interest rates and make monetary policy. While thousands of foreclosed houses are remained empty in the market, a multitude of individuals do not have adequate housing to live in. Young brokers, investment bankers, traders working in Wall Street, make huge amounts of money starting from 7 digit annual salaries and up and the managers and executives’ compensation in Wall Street run up to 8 digits annually plus a “golden parachute” of getting a fortune in case of dismissal. 3  Or the “30 glorious years of capitalism”, as this period is usually called in France.

Not only are investment and technical progress intrinsic to the system, but, more important, democratic politics – the use of the state as an instrument of collective action by popularly elected governments – is always checking or correcting capitalism. The only connection between this disequilibrium and the financial crisis was that the countries that experienced current account deficits were also the countries where business enterprises and households were more indebted, and will have more difficulty in recovering, whereas the opposite is true of the surplus countries. In his paper, Palma stresses that it not sufficient to understand the neoliberal coalition as responding to its economic interests, as a Marxian approach would suggest. Global Research The “financial capitalism” foretold by Rudolf Hilferding (1910), in which banking and industrial capital would merge under the control of the former, did not materialize, but what did materialize was financial globalization – the liberalization of financial markets and a major increase in financial flows around the world – and finance-based capitalism or financialized capitalism. In Australia Rudd Labor’s response to the crisis appeared to break with neoliberalism. But since the capitalist revolution and the systematic increase in the economic surplus that it yielded, gradual change toward a better world, from capitalism to democratic socialism, is taking place. Concurrently, democracy has faced multiple challenges, from the failure of referenda to instigate democratic change, as seen in Greece, and inversely the success of referenda to limit political freedoms, as seen in Turkey. The banking crisis that began in 2007 and became a global crisis in 2008 is also a social crisis since the International Labor Organization estimated that unemployment had reached around 20 million to 50 million by the end of 2009, whereas, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, as the incomes of the poor are falling due to the crisis but the international prices of food commodities remain high, the number of undernourished people in the world increased by 11 percent in 2009, and, for the first time, exceeded one billion. Capitalism is unstable, and crises are intrinsic to it, but, given that a lot has been done to avoid a repetition of the 1929 crisis, it is not sufficient to rely on the cyclical character of financial crises or on the greedy character of financists to explain such a severe crisis as the present one. Accounting practices are deeply implicated in the current financial crisis and in proposals for recapitalizing financial institutions and restoring stability to the global financial system. It will still be global capitalism, but no longer neoliberal or financialized. The mathematical turn, however, had disastrous consequences for economics in so far as it led economists on to a false and highly ideological path. 10This change in the size and in the mode of operation of the financial system was closely related to the decline in the participation of commercial banks in financial operations and the reduction of their profit rates (Kregel 1998). Minsky Hyman P. (1982), Inflation, Recession and Economic Policy. All transactions should be much more transparent. Finally there was a domino effect on the entire US and the other countries’ stock markets. Neoliberalism, in its turn, should not be understood merely as radical economic liberalism but also as an ideology that is hostile to the poor, to workers and to the welfare state. Each society has its own regime of truth, its ‘general politics’ of truth, that is, the set of discourses that it chooses and makes work as truthful”. The aim is to get beyond the convention asking the well-rehearsed questions about what caused the crisis, or why the established theories could not predict it. His predecessor Paul Volcker had warned about consequences of such monetary expansion. As Figure 3 shows, in the neoliberal years income was concentrated strongly in the hands of the richest two percent of the population; if we consider just the richest one percent in the United States, in 1930 they controlled 23 percent of total disposable income; in 1980, in the context of the 30 glorious years of capitalism, this share had fallen to nine percent; yet by 2007 it was back to 23 percent! They reflect the vicious brotherhood between neoliberalism and the neoclassical economics taught in graduate courses in the United States.12. The decline continued in big percentages in the following days, despite of a coordinated interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, and some central banks on October 8. But although rich countries are already showing some signs of recovery, their prospects are not good. N2 - "This volume unravels a complex web of connections around the current financial and economic crisis. Americans hoped the Democrats in the new Congress could stop the war. What is saved will be invested; therefore there cannot be lack of purchasing power. To measure the big economic failure of neoliberalism, to understand the harm that this global behavior caused, we just have to compare the thirty glorious years with the thirty neoliberal years. Realizing the crisis as critical, in late September, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson urgently asked for $700 billion more of the tax payers’ money to purchase bad debts from the banks that were close to fail. In Portuguese, in the printed edition; in English, in the journal’s website: www.rep.org.br. Despite some road accidents, economic development has been accompanied by improvements in the scope and quality of democracy. However, Karl Marx considered Say’s argument an “absurd dogma”. 31The relations between economics and ideology were always close. He received his Ph.D. in political economy from the University of Texas at Dallas. Sharon Beder The new right promoted a fundamentalist view of markets that came to be referred to as economic rationalism in Australia and, more widely, as neoliberalism. In 2007 the sum of securitized debt was three times bigger than in 1990, and the total of derivatives six times bigger. Their allies are the public intellectuals and academics that were co-opted or became what Antonio Gramsci (1934) called “organic intellectuals”. Eventually, however, and principally after crises like that of 2008, civic commitment and political development will be resumed out of indignation and self-interest. These four responses were in the right direction. The hope that the crisis would give rise to a more progressive capitalism, however, proved to be premature. They are essentially expressed in Minsky’s model that, by no coincidence, was developed in the 1970s. This was a wrong path that, nevertheless, produced a great economist, Alfred Marshall, who developed microeconomics. No one could have predicted that the Anglo-Saxon financial meltdown could happen so fast. Governments’ response to the crisis in monetary and fiscal terms was so decisive that the crisis will not be transformed into a depression, but it will take time to be solved, for one basic reason: financial crises always develop out of high indebtedness or leverage and the ensuing loss of confidence on the part of creditors. Therefore, the Bush administration wanted to use military force to open the Third World market to the US products. The plan that is referred to as Economic Stabilization Act is similar to the Resolution Trust Corporation that was set up to take care of the saving and loan crisis in 1989. From the competing visions of recovery, the ascendance of austerity as both a political and an economic project paved the way for … 21Neoliberalism and financialization happened in the context of commercial and financial globalization. AU - Calhoun, Craig. Arrow Kenneth J. and Gerard Debreu (1954), “Existence of equilibrium for a competitive economy”, Econometrica 22 (3): 265-290. In his book Das Kapital, Marx argued anarchy of production in market economy results in overproduction and lack of consumers’ purchasing power at times that are the key causes of periodic economic crises. They evaluate the scientific character of an economic theory by reference not to its approximation to reality or its ability to explain the behavior of economic systems, but to its mathematical consistency. It is the practice of normal science in the Kuhnian sense; it has limited scope, but is valuable because it checks theories. In November 2008, the G-20 leaders signed a statement committing themselves to a firm re-regulation of their financial systems; in September 2009, they reaffirmed their commitment. Notre site en Français: mondialisation.ca. Yet, although it is a substantive social science adopting a hypothetical-deductive method, it should not be confused with econometrics, which also uses mathematics extensively but, in so far as it is a methodological science, does so legitimately. 8With neoliberal capitalism a new regime of accumulation emerged: financialization or finance-led capitalism. Neoliberalism has failed in allocation of health care services, housing, and other basic needs. 56Capitalism will change, but we should not overestimate the immediate changes. For now, to revive the economy and prevent a major recession, more government involvement in the economy is essential. As a result, Allen Greenspan, the former Chairman of Federal Reserve, opened the money spigot by reducing Federal Fund rate to stimulate demand so that the severity of economic recession could be prevented. Response to financial meltdown is entangled with basic challenges to global governance. Most foreclosed homes were worth less than their loans’ balance when their prices fell; for that reason the banks had to short sell them. In his view, “the essential difference between Keynesian and both classical and neoclassical economics is the importance attached to uncertainty” (p. 128). Based on such learning, governments built institutions, principally central banks, and developed systems, at national and international levels (Bretton Woods), to control credit and avoid or reduce the intensity and scope of financial crises. It is more instructive to distinguish the two ideologies historically. Statistics distinguishing the salaries and bonuses received by the professional class and, in this case, a fraction of that class, the financists, from other forms of revenue are not available, but there is little doubt that such compensation increases as knowledge replaces capital as the strategic factor of production. URL : http://journals.openedition.org/regulation/7729 ; DOI : 10.4000/regulation.7729, Emeritus professor of Getúlio Vargas Foundation. 5.3), I calculated the percentage of years in which countries faced a banking crisis in these two periods of an equal number of years. In this historical process, the demands of the poor for better standards of living, for more freedom, for more equality and for more environmental protection are in constant and dialectical conflict with the interests of the establishment; this is the fundamental cause of social progress. (2005), “Introduction: financialization and the world economy”, in Gerald A. Epstein, ed. The Unfolding of the Global Financial Crisis, Rescued by the British Treasury and Bank Of England, I P Morgan Chase took over, the FED guaranteed $29 billion, US government gave $100 billion each and guaranteed about 5.3 trillion of their debt, Derbyshire and Cheshire Building Societies. In terms of financial instability, although it is always problematic to define and measure financial crises, it is clear that their incidence and frequency greatly increased: according to Bordo et al. Financial risk should be systematically limited. We should not confuse globalization with financialization. Income defined as annual gross income reported on tax returns excluding all government transfers and before individual income taxes and employees’ payroll taxes (but after employers’ payroll taxes and corporate income taxes). In addition to deregulating markets, the neoliberal hegemony was instrumental in eroding society’s moral standards. According to the quarterly reports published in line with the regulations of the Security and Exchange Commission, in the first semester of 2009 benefits and compensation paid by Goldman Sachs (an investment bank that is emerging from the crisis stronger than before) amounted to US$11.4 billion against a net profit of US$4.4 billion; given that it had in this year 29,400 employees, and if we double the US$11.4 billion to have the quantity on an approximate year base, the average compensation per employee was US$765,000! Eight Centuries of Financial Folly. Finally, the United States had come out of World War II as the new hegemon, and, supposedly, as a liberal example of economic organization that should be a model for the whole world. From the 30 glorious years to the neoliberal years of capitalism, www.kansascityfed.org/publicat/sympos/2008/Buiter.09.06.08.pdf. If, after it broke, the governments of the rich countries had not suddenly woken up and adopted Keynesian policies of reducing interest rates, increasing liquidity drastically, and, principally, engaging in fiscal expansion, this crisis would have probably done more damage to the world economy than the Great Depression. Group of Thirty – Working Group on Financial Reform (2009), Financial Reform: a Framework for Financial Stability. 23The causes of the crisis are also moral. Now nations will be engaged in re-regulating markets. Nevertheless, for some time after that, financial stability at the center of the capitalist system was reasonably assured – only in developing countries, principally in Latin America, did a major foreign debt crisis build up. Financists are the executives and traders who manage financial organization or trade on their behalf, earning salaries and performance bonuses. This kind of ideology makes only the rich cynical; to the extent that it is hegemonic, it renders the poor and the middle classes disillusioned and politically paralyzed. 50Finally, this crisis showed that each nation’s real institution “of last resource” is its own state; it was with the state that each national society counted to face the crisis. Consumer spending is the largest part of the US economy. In the 1930s Keynes and Kalecki developed new economic theories that better explained how to work economic systems, and rendered economic policymaking much more effective in stabilizing economic cycles, whereas sensible people alerted economists and politicians to the dangers of unfettered markets. The profitable health insurance for the younger and middle aged individuals is privatized and the money losing elderly health care is socialized. Got approval to become regulated bank holding companies, Took over by FDIC, J P Morgan bough its deposits for $1.90. Bribery of civil servants and politicians became a generalized practice, thereby “confirming” the market fundamentalist thesis that public officials are intrinsically self-oriented and corrupt. Labour was in power during the financial crisis and recession, so it was always likely that it would be ousted afterwards. 15  For the critique of growth with foreign savings or current account deficits, see Bresser-Pereira and Nakano (2003) and Bresser-Pereira and Gala (2007); for the argument that this mistaken economic policy was principally responsible for the financial crises of the 1990s in the middle-income countries, see Bresser-Pereira, Gonzales and Lucinda (2008). The takeover of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America immediately raised eyebrows in the financial market. But the result was exactly the opposite of the public expectation. History has demonstrated that both hypotheses are false. Comment on Global Research Articles on our Facebook page, Disclaimer: The contents of this article are of sole responsibility of the author(s). In his book The Great Transformation, he argued that the self-adjusting market institution is an impractical idea that “could not exist for any length of time without annihilating the human and natural substance of society; it would have physically destroyed man and transformed his surroundings into wilderness.” Since then, there have been periodic economic recessions during 1953-54, 1973-74,1990-1991, 2001-2002, and now a more sever one is happening. As the Great Depression demonstrated, while neoclassical microeconomics proved helpful in making choices in markets, neoclassical economics was not an effective instrument for macroeconomic policymaking. Although they are dealing with a substantive science, which has a clear object to analyze, they evaluate the scientific character of an economic theory not by reference to its relation to reality, or to its capacity to explain economic systems, but to its mathematical consistency, that is, to the criterion of the methodological sciences (Bresser-Pereira 2009). John Maynard Keynes’ theories helped to bring US economy out of the depression. 41Although associated with them, rentiers resent the increasing power of the financists and the increasing share of the total economic surplus that they receive. Sin embargo, desde finales de los años 1970 una coalición política de capitalistas rentistas y de financistas pasó a ser hegemónica, y ha desregulado los mercados financieros al mismo tiempo que ella creó innovaciones financieras arriesgadas. How was this possible? Yet this latter process will require time. In the paper “Financial instability revisited”, Minsky (1972) showed that not only economic crises but also financial crises are endogenous to the capitalist system. Liam Stanley surveys these debates and argues that a more nuanced understanding of neoliberalism beyond ‘states and markets’ would be a good start. 16We have known all this for many years, principally since the Great Depression, which was a major source of social learning. The first major jolt to Neoliberalism was felt through the Global Financial Crisis of 2007/08. The health care industry is widely inefficient, which has resulted in excessive cost and thus it is not affordable to almost 40% of the population. For sure, they acknowledge market failures (many neoclassical economists won the Nobel Prize for discovering new market failures), and, so, when analyzing specific cases, they attempt to drop the unrealistic assumptions. Besides, economic liberalism is the ideology of markets, whereas economics is the theory of how markets coordinate economic systems. ([1942]1950), Socialism, Capitalism, and Democracy. The amount of $700 billion of public fund was devoted to remove distressed debt securities from the balance sheet of the US banks. A great model that did not orient economic policy – actually economic policies make no sense because markets are self-regulating except for the policies defending competition – but rather justified deregulation and the neoliberal demand for the minimum state (Bresser-Pereira 2009). The method allows them to use mathematics recklessly, and such use supports their claim that their models are scientific. Berkeley: University of California Press. This possibility should concern us all, but it is not reasonable to assume that people are not learning from the present crisis. Middle-income countries like China and Brazil are already recovering. Eventually, defaults on subprime loan payments led to decline of mortgage back securities and that caused stocks of financial institutions that had issued and purchased such securities to fall. The adversaries of this political coalition of rentiers and financists included not only the workers and the salaried middle classes, whose wages and salaries would be dutifully reduced to recompense stockholders, but also the top professional executives of the large business corporations, the financists that I am defining as the top executives in financial institutions, and the traders. Written in Italian around 1934. This crisis contributes to eliminating these doubts in so far as, among the three major issues that came to the fore, one was the bonuses or, more broadly, the compensation that financists receive (the other two issues were the need to regulate financial markets and the need to curb fiscal havens). Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, Merrill Lynch had to be sold to Bank of America, Washington Mutual had to be seized by FDIC and its deposits were sold to J. P. Morgan Chase, and Wachovia had be sold to the Citigroup. With such political reductionism, neoliberalism aimed to demoralize the state. Social learning is arduous but it happens. It can allow the international capital market to channel world savings to their most productive uses across the globe. On the other hand, to the extent that the number of students in higher education will continue to increase, knowledge will also become less scarce – which will contribute to the reduction of economic inequality. Financialization will be understood here as a distorted financial arrangement based on the creation of artificial financial wealth, that is, financial wealth disconnected from real wealth or from the production of goods and services. The material on this site is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving it for research and educational purposes. Indeed, the growing weight of international finance made financial crises increasingly common: from Mexico in 1994 and the crisis in the Asian Tigers in 1997, when the Thai baht, Korean won and Malaysian ringgit collapsed overnight, to the meltdown in Argentina in 2001. New York: The New Press. It was a crisis not only of neoliberalism but also of neoclassical economics – of the general equilibrium model, of neoclassical macroeconomics and of neoclassical financial theory. 33After 1870 the neoclassical school substituted the marginal utility theory for the labor theory of value, and substituted the assumptions of homo economicus and the corresponding hypothetical deductive method for the historical-deductive method utilized by classical economists. Why did the theories, organizations, and institutions that emerged from previous crises fail to prevent this one? 13In the era of neoliberal dominance, neoliberal ideologues claimed that the Anglo-Saxon model was the only path to economic development. But when people cannot afford to pay back the money that have borrowed, the economy runs to crisis. 19There is little doubt about the immediate causes of the crisis. Merit continues to legitimize large differences in income. Three decades of neoliberal economic policy has led to widest gap between rich and poor in America as compared to other industrialized nations. At the same time, real wages have stagnated or declined. Examples of juggernaut corporate formations are re-emerging of the new AT & T as a giant communication conglomerate, Exxon Mobil the world second largest corporation , and the consolidation of large financial institutions as is happening now. Individuals’ retirement funds are mostly invested in securities market. Such pressure may sometimes lose momentum either because people feel frustrated with the slow progress or, more important, because an ideology such as neoliberalism is essentially oriented to civic disengagement: only private interests are relevant.

All Fall Down: The Asian Financial Crisis, Neoliberalism and Economic Miracles Walden Bello Ten years after the Asian financial cataclysm of 1997, the economies of the Western Pacific Rim are growing, though not at the rates they enjoyed before the crisis. In this it will certainly be followed by many countries, but meanwhile we will have an aggravated problem of insufficient demand. Milton Friedman’s monetarism, completed by Robert Lucas’s rational expectations, performed the first task; the Modigliani and Miller (1958) model completed by Eugene Fama’s efficient-markets hypothesis performed the second; and the Solow model (1956), completed by the endogenous growth models, took care of the third. As Maurice Obstfeld (1998) has noted, “economic theory leaves no doubt about the potential advantages” of capital account liberalization, which is also sometimes called financial openness. Their models are mathematical castles in the air that have no practical use, except to justify “scientifically” self-regulating and efficient markets, or, in other words, to play the role of a meta-ideology that justifies a broader ideology, namely, neoliberalism. Besides, it responds to the sheer Foucaultian demand for power on the part of the members of the political coalition, in that “according to Michel Foucault the core aspect of neo-liberalism relates to the problem of the relationship between political power and the principles of a market economy”.
