Capital Crisis and Food Production: Work and Ecological Crisis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This research uses the marxist notion of “abstract work” to articulate capital and ecological crises to the work crisis proposing the discussion of food production as a way to reflect on this issue. The focus is on the burgeois form of social metabolism based on men and nature exploration, establishing as hypothesis that on abstract work the human necessities are just “indispensable side effects” for capital development. Methodologically this research uses quantitative and qualitative data about food production and hunger situation in the world to frame the civilizational and ecological structural capitalism crisis. Taking into account the financial crisis of 2008 this research proposes that the core problem is work itself in this system: the permanent revolution of production forces inside the dynamic of capitalism displaces an important “organic composition of capital”, in despite of social necessary working time dominate as abstract measure of wealth. We consider the capital-work crisis as a more evidence to establish the fundamental importance of a critique about the men-nature relation that construct and destroy this civilization.
