Accumulation in Post-Colonial Capitalism

This quantity seems to be at how accumulation in postcolonial capitalism blurs the bounds of area, associations, kinds, monetary regimes, labour procedures, and fiscal segments on one hand, and creates zones and corridors at the different. It attracts our awareness to the bizarre yet structurally invaluable coexistence of either primitive and digital modes of accumulation within the postcolony.

Sample text

32 We have successively shown that abstract labour time is different from time as it is experienced in life, that it cannot be reduced either to the type or the physiological reality of labour, and that it is not external to the contradiction of the commodity, but is instead inherent to it. Positively, it has revealed to us the following of its secrets: it is a social relation that dominates agents instead of being dominated by them, and it contains a contradiction, for it is both an inherent and an external quality of particular commodities.

This reading unites instead of separates the moments of economic life, for each moment comprises the whole totality without eliminating the formal differences. We believe that such a reading is compatible with Marx’s spirit and in no way constitutes a ‘novelty’ with respect to the author of Capital. It is also necessary to note that our mode of exposition is purely logical. Obviously, it is not abstract labour as a universality that introduces a division within itself (as we have noted), for the universal only logically precedes the particular.

Between the abstract logical laws – immanent to the unfolding economic rationality – and 6 • Introduction historical time, there exists no relation of separation, but a relation of reciprocal communication and impregnation. The former is realised in historically concrete forms, political and economic-institutional, which periodically go into crisis and evolve by leaps and bounds. Through the fluctuations of the profit rate and through crises, capital ‘gives a rhythm’ to history and directs it, orientates the trajectory followed without mechanically predetermining it, and diminishes chance without erasing it.
