Capitalism and democracy at a crossroads: the civilizational dimension

1998-06-01
Ozveren, E
This paper evaluates Schumpeter's grand vision as reflected in his Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy, and elaborates it in conjunction with the so-called "globalization" trends characteristic of the wake of the twenty-first century. In addition to the evolutionary nature of his methodology, the institutionalist dimension of Schumpeter's definitions are brought to light. A case is made for a fundamental process of "uncreative destruction" as far as the institutional setup of the economy is concerned. The contention of this paper is that there is ample support in Schumpeterian analysis for a counterpoint to the liberal thesis that envisages the worldwide spread of individualism, market economies, and democratic forms of government.

Toplumsal Yapı Ve Eğitim
Ersoy, Melih (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1976)
Kapitalist üretim biçimi, yapısı gereği eşit olmayan gelişme yasalarına uyar. Bu toplum biçiminin bir dengeler bütünü olduğunu savlayan görüş, kuramla nesnel gerçeklik arasındaki uyuşmazlığın nedenini piyasa mekanizmasının tam olarak işleyememesine bağlar.

Bu ana işlevler yanında kapitalizmin kendine özgü iç çel...
