In the early twenty-first century, capital is confident of being able to organize itself as it pleases in a deregulated financial industry. The only thing it expects of politics is its capitulation to the market by eliminating social democracy as an economic force.

If constructive opposition is impossible, those who are not content to spend their life paying off debts incurred by others have no other option than destructive opposition. This is needed to strengthen the delaying effect of what is
Jordi van der Meulen
The main points of Buying Time are the following:
1. There are two classes in society, capital and labour class. The capital class (Marktvolk) represents capitalism, while the labour (Staatsvolk) organises around democracy.
2. In the 50s and 60s labour and capital arranged their disputes through the democratic process. However, in the 70s, capital used its power to move toward a neoliberal state.
3. To accomplish this, the Marktvolk worked towards a international federation in which democracy

Streeck does a masterful job exposing the future of democracy in a capitalist (consolidated) state. From the tax state, through the debt state, to the consolidation state the market is made immune to democratic correctives. The European economic union is the emerging example.

There are some techniques for managing the underclass including consumerist pseudo-satisfactions, re-education of citizens, or simply eliminating substantive democracy.

We may gain a rough idea of the next stage if we recall

Explains a number of competing budgetary strategies by reference to the single underlying idea of facilitating continued capital accumulation. Then relates this to the approaching terminal crisis of democratic capitalism and the likely impossibility of reconciling 'market justice' with 'social justice'. The retrieval of the concept of 'legitimation crisis' helped me understand how governments deal with these competing claims, largely by deferring to 'market justice' as they attempt to 'buy time' ...more

Streecks account of the financial crisis and its aftermath posits that our current predicament is far from temporary. Democratic capitalism, Streeck argues, is suffering from a legitimation crisis. This legitimation crisis comes not from the discontent of waged-workers (as predicted by the crisis theories of the Frankfurt School) but from the discontent of capital itself. Though the Keynesian consensus temporarily benefitted capital with its promise of endless growth without boom and bust, ...more

Unusually long review...

I picked up Buying Time after reading a couple of chapters for one of my modules last semester and finding Streeck to be one of the stand-out authors included on that course. Streeck is a critical theorist writing in the tradition of crisis studies from the 1960s and 1970s, from which came the idea that we exist in a period of late capitalism, and that the system is always on the brink of being toppled by a population increasingly

This book was released in English under the title 'Buying Time: The Delayed Crisis of Democratic Capitalism'.

In this book Streeck convincingly shows how the market is increasingly, and more and more effectively, fenced of from democratic influences, by liberating it from many means of regulation. This is a development which started for more than four decades ago and still goes on today.

By organizing itself on a supranational level (in banks and institutions like the ECB and IMF), the market

So this book was difficult for me but I think thats mostly due to the fact that International Political Economy is not my area of expertise and the fact that this book is a translated work made it, at times, awkward. But once I got used to the writing style and took my time with the content, I enjoyed his argument and thought it was well-put. ...more

Un livre a lire par tout citoyen de l'union europeenne et plus encore de l'eurozone. Enfin une analyse claire et des explications a ce projet oh combien terrifiant qui devrait se faire emporter par son propre non-sens. Il apporte egalement de nombreuses explications aux crises de confiance des pays de l'UE mais aussi aux crises eco des pays du sud

Although written four years before Britain voted for Brexit and Donald Trump was elected President of the US, this book is a superb analysis of the political and economic situation that led us to the place we now find ourselves.

In the first section, Streeck suggests that over the last 40 years capitalism has been in the process of unpeeling the post war compromise. This compromise bought social peace at the price of sharing profits more equitably with labour. In conditions of consistent growth,

Somehow I feel skeptical when socioligists try to venture too much into macroeconomy. I respect qualitative analysis but I am wary that it can lead to whatever conclusion, no matter how unsubstantiated by facts and figures. Nevertheless, when I started this book i did it with an open mind, hoping to find in it some true challenges to the mainstream liberal believes. Well, I did not find much in that respect.

Some arguments are not only lacking any shred of scientific background, but are frankly

One of the startling problems / challenges / concerns of our time is why the global financial crisis did not result in the death - or at least the deep dismissal - of neoliberalism. Instead, and in a very short period, neoliberalism is not only clinging to survival but once more a dominating ideology.

Wolfgang Streeck talks this ponderous reality as his starting point. To understanding what is happening, he uses Adorno and the Frankfurt School to grasp the complexity of 'crisis.' Throughout the

L'ultimo discepolo di Theodor Adorno getta un sasso nello stagno della tranquilla intelligencija tedesca. il libro ha per argomento il contrasto tra democrazia e capitalismo, con particolare riguardo all'Unione Europea e alla zona euro. Si narra che, dal dibattito che ne è scaturito con Habermas e Offe, ci si potrebbe scrivere un altro libro. Se non vi accontentate della vulgata dei giornali , della televisione e del pensiero razionale mainstream questo un libro che dovete leggere

“Higher taxes to bring down public debt would also put to rest the tawdry rhetoric according to which ‘we’ should not live at the expense of ‘our children’ – when the real problem is that the ‘better-off’ live at everyone else’s expense by largely avoiding the social costs involved in the upkeep of their hunting grounds.” 7 likes
“As the US presidential changeover from Clinton to Bush Jr demonstrated, budget surpluses can serve as a pretext for tax cuts that generate new deficits, which then require further spending cuts to restore the surpluses. The interplay between tax and spending cuts shows that the balancing of budgets in the consolidation state is not pursued for its own sake but, as part of a programme of privatization and liberalization, is intended to bring about a general rollback of the state and its intervention in the market.” 0 likes
