Massimo De Angelis — On Crises. Chapter 7 of Beginning of History.

This is chapter 7 of my 2007 book The Beginning of History. Its title is Enclosures and Disciplinary Integration and it discusses capitalist crises as “disequilibrium” crises or “social stability” crises. It might be useful to provide a general framework to understand the current crisis in terms of the latter.  It also maps out crises as mechanisms for capitalist reproduction and discusses the role of shifting  capitalist governance to deal with these crises as well as the possible cracks in this governance.
