How Monopoly-Finance Capital Leads to Economic Stagnation

Who’s harmed when monopoly-finance capital outpaces real production? Find out why, under the resulting economic stagnation, everyone suffers.

The Endless Crisis
This incisive and timely book traces the origins of economic stagnation and explains what it means for a clear understanding of our current situation — an endless crisis. John Bellamy Foster and Robert W. McChesney point out that increasing monopolization of the economy — when a handful of large firms dominate one or several industries — leads to an over-abundance of capital and too few profitable investment opportunities, with economic stagnation as the result.
