Erely as capitalist labour would have no choice but to join the Communist revolution in Russia GREAT IDEAS Throughout history some books have changed the world They have transformed the way we see ourselves and each other They have inspired debate dissent war. Inside the thicket of familiar Communist polemic are some thought provoking and still relevant insightsIn the 1990s I used to read The Globe and Mail and one of my favorite contributors was Donald Coxe who had a column in the business section Coxe is an investment analyst and he manages one or mutual funds of his own Recently I was reading an interview with him on BullionVaultcom a British website devoted to buying and selling gold and in the course of it he mentioned this book by Lenin praising it as a brilliant analysis of how the business machinations of the European powers led to World War I Intrigued by this recommendation from a capitalist I respected I took the plunge and bought my own copy of Lenin s ImperialismNow I ve read it and while I think that Mr Coxe overstated the uality of this book I did find some valuable ideas in itFirst the negatives this is a Communist tract that is mainly preaching to the converted It is filled with the typical rhetorical clutter of name calling sarcasm and ad hominem jabs all of which severely impair the seeming objectivity and credibility of the author He spends much time excoriating other Marxist authors for their perversion of Marx s doctrines And it doesn t help that Lenin himself went on to become a dictator and a tyrantAllowing for all of that I found the book to be of definite interest For one thing Lenin is comfortable with facts and figures and he presents a number of short tables showing the growth of industrial and then banking monopolies and cartels in 19th century Europe and America He observes how the frenzy of colonial land grabs of the late 19th century followed hard on these developments and he infers a causal connection The original capitalism of free trade which had made England so rich had evolved to a later stage of monopolistic capitalism in which competition has given way to coercion He gives plenty of persuasive evidence of the predatory and anticompetitive behavior of the cartels in steel railroads oil and electricity to name a few The tycoons at the top divided the world into fixed territories and set the prices If competitors appeared they were bought out or crushedProfits are bigger if you control the cost of raw materials yourself this is achieved by capturing the territory where they re produced This is where a national element enters for the cartels of different countries don t necessarily play nicely with each other their agreements can collapse The cartels of each country drive their country s colonial agenda Lenin shows how Earth was completely parceled into colonies in the second half of the 19th century And since World War I led to a big realignment of these one has to wonder what role colonial competition played in that ferocious conflictIn the last century most colonies have achieved nominal independence But war remains a big business Why exactly is it that one country one possessing vast resource wealth is invaded to seize its nonexistent weapons of mass destruction while another country one possessing no resource wealth is left alone despite actually possessing such weapons I m speaking of Ira and North Korea but other examples come to mindWar is justified to credulous voters in terms of ideology security or even emotional slights but its real business appears to be what it has always been the seizure of assets by forceV I Lenin saw this 100 years ago He thought that Marxism was the cure Apparently it isn t So the disease rages onThe ancient dictum still applies cui bono who benefits Or in the words of the Watergate source Deep Throat follow the money Lenin followed the money but neither he nor anyone else has been able to do much about it Encounters with Rauschenberg used to read The Globe and Mail and one of my favorite

Vladimir Lenin created this hugely significant Marxist text to explain fully the inevitable flaws and destructive power of Capitalism that it would lead unavoidably to imperialism monopolies and colonialism He prophesied that those third world countries used m. This is the second book I ve read by Lenin This one s short invective and theoretically sweet Could a Marxist ask for In this book Lenin is exploring the contradictions inherent in 18th century capitalism and the resolution capitalism seeks within its own structures to resolve the contradiction or the negation of the negation which euals Imperialism For Lenin the increased concentration of the means of production by those who win on the free market even if winning means cheating and free market is a misnomer will rise to a monopoly position Lenin of course seems spot on about this observation and this view is now generally accepted hence trust busting heavy state regulation the reuirement for too big to fail intervention etc Monopoly is a stage of capitalism we ve come to accept it and Lenin chose to fight against it Lenin believes again rightfully so that members of an industrial and productive monopoly will begin to sit on the board of directors intermingle with and holds strong ties with monopoly banks or those that garner profit via Finance Capital Again this is no surprise today If you analyze who sits on the board of most of Wall Street s banks along with GE Lockheed Martin Shell etc you ll find the same names cropping up Thus there is no real democracy in this free market there is influence and oligarchy A financial oligarchy to be preciseThis oligarch will then be sure to guarantee that finance capital works in its interest and prevents up and comers from usurping their position or even damaging their position as the newest Monopoly Man Moreover whereas the Capitalism of Marx s period was obsessed with exporting commodities once all colonies are fully colonized and the territory is fully seized by the state finance capital enters through the back door hell maybe even the front sometimes armed ie with the state police or US military on its side to cease exporting commodities and begin to export capital Capital will serve as the catalyst for production in the colony where the colony will begin to do the exporting of raw materials as backed by finance capital from a hegemon albeit Lenin doesn t use this term and ship the resources back to the hegemon while paying interest on the finance capital lent to it Thus Imperialism is what follows successful colonization Again check out what the US was doing in Latin America after WWII and the Middle East now and it s hard to deny Lenin s claimsThere is a new development though in Capitalism a negation of imperialism if you will Now the oligarch doesn t just shift from board to board acting in its own interest but it shifts from board to board to regulation agency to seat in congress to cabinet position in the White House etc using all these various outlets to act in the interest of monopoly capital This is now known as the revolving door phenomena in Washington Henry Paulson goes from Goldman Sachs to Secretary of Treasury to a private closed door meeting with Wall Street s oligarchy constantly acting in the interest of finance capital to name one example Of course I doubt any of this would surprise Lenin and it shouldn t surprise anyone else either only offend them

    Damn near propheticImperialism reads like Vladimir Lenin’s attempt to write a sort of addendum or update to Marx’s Das Kapital To provide a materialist statistically derived examination of the ways capitalism changed between the time of Marx up to the first world warThat sounds like a dry theoretical project but what Lenin achieves here is almost scary This book is possibly the first coherent statement about the nature of capitalism on
