Cómo nos explotan las finanzas
In this book he studies in depth the "financialization", probably the most relevant concept to understand contemporary capitalism and, therefore, the long phase of crisis that began in 2007. Understood as a form of economic organization that no longer seeks to ensure the growth, employment or investment, but the increase of profits by financial means, financialization has permeated the behavior of all economic agents (companies, households, states). In this time, the entrepreneur has become an investor, the benefit in financial income and investments in mere movements of capital masses. In order to understand the magnitude of these changes, Lapavitsas insists on an original investigation that leads him to review everything that has been written about money and finance and, especially, Marxist contributions.
