Government, State and Big Business - How big business exercises political power and how we challenge it - class one
In this first class we look at Marxist theory of the state. We will examine the difference between being in government and controlling state power; what Marxists mean when they say that the state is an instrument of class rule; the limits and possibilities of the capitalist state and the changing ways in which the state acts to defend the capitalist class’s economic and political rule.
This course is led by Dr Jonathan White.
