The unity of the capitalist economy and state: A systematic-dialectical exposition of the capitalist system, by Geert Reuten
In 'The unity of the capitalist economy and state,' Geert Reuten offers a systematic exposition of the capitalist system, showing that the capitalist economy and the capitalist state constitute a unity. In its critique of contemporary economics, the book argues that in order to comprehend the capitalist system, one requires a full synthetic exposition of the economic and state institutions and processes necessary for its continued existence.
Geert Reuten teaches political economy at the University of Amsterdam's School of Economics. He has authored two books (including Value-form and the state, with Michael Williams, Routledge 1989), edited six books and published seventy articles in academic journals and books.
