THE RISE OF NEO-LIBERLISM IN ADVANCED CAPITALIST ECONOMIES
I made significant progress on my research projects while at NIAS. About a half of my new book, The Rise of Neoliberalism in Advanced Capitalist Economies, has been written, and the argument of my paper, The Rationality of Violence, Terror and War, has been finalised. I also completed, and have had accepted for publication, an article on Max Weber’s thesis on the Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, as well as a review of an important book on controversies in Capital Theory. Being at NIAS for the year contributed significantly to this progress.
