Example text

Instead, the argument will be made that neoliberal globalisation is intrinsically hierarchical and exploitative. Of course, we should not expect anything else from capitalism, whatever social gains may be made under this system. However, I will also argue that, in many respects, neoliberal globalisation constitutes a backward step from the gains made in the post-war period – and that, therefore, whatever the prospects for socialist alternatives to capitalism, it is simply illegitimate for globalisation theorists such as Giddens to take neoliberal capitalism for granted on the grounds that there is no alternative to it.

Rather than undermining states, I argue that globalisation is actually associated with the (still incomplete) universalisation of the system of nation-states. Having said that, there is a need to recognise that there has been a considerable increase in the number and role of international institutions, especially since 1945, and this is discussed in the second section. In the third section I examine some of the debates around global governance, and focus on whether these have led to – or at least opened up the possibility of – the promotion of genuinely multilateral governance, beyond the system of nationstates.

In one word, it creates a world after its own image. (Mark and Engels 1977: 37–8) Thus, for Marx globalisation is ultimately a product of the dynamism of the capitalist mode of production, which itself is a product of historically specific relations of production. These relations are based on the separation of labour from direct access to the means of production – that is, on the removal of producers from the land. This ongoing process was particularly common in England from the seventeenth century, and continues throughout the world to this day.
