This video is part 3 in a series on the Geopolitical Economy Report, which features discussions between editor-in-chief Ben Norton and Geopolitical Economy Research Group director Radhika Desai on Desai’s new book Capitalism, Coronavirus and War: A Geopolitical Economy.
In this third instalment, Desai discusses how capitalism is inherently imperialist, what the class struggle looks like at the international level, and how “the dominant ideas are the ideas of the ruling classes of the dominant nations”.
This is a discussion of chapter 3, “The geopolitical economy of capitalism and socialism”, from Radhika’s book “Capitalism, Coronavirus and War: A Geopolitical Economy”.
