Summary expansion
This translated volume of Tadeusz Kowalik's Rosa Luxemburg examines the theorist's contribution to economic theory. Part I discusses the dependence of capital accumulation on effective demand and also on specific capitalist barriers to growth. Part II is devoted to the relationship between capital accumulation and economic (and political) imperialism. Luxemburg's analysis is contrasted to the underconsumptionist theory of capitalist crisis that prevailed among her critics. Although Kowalik recognizes Luxemburg's analysis as incomplete, he argues that she correctly identified the realization of surplus as the key constraint on expanded production in capitalism. This then points to a reinterpretation of Kalecki and Keynes, placing their analyses in a clear line of descent from Marx. Kalecki's analysis of militarism neatly complements Luxemburg's analysis, while Kowalik identifies neo-colonialism as a type of Luxemburg imperialism, providing markets that allow for the realisation of profits in the advanced capitalist countries. Toporowski and Szymborska's accessible translation of Tadeusz Kowalik's masterpiece will appeal to professional economists, scholars, researchers and students of the history of economic thought and economic theory
