Altitude Sickness / Notes on a Trip to Bolivia

1. In its heterogeneity and permanent movement, Bolivia is at the same time the experience and the fracture of magma. It is there where faces, bodies, and languages tell stories that challenge those seeking to understand, accompany, and enjoy. Our trip, in February 2005, was a struggle between this attempt to understand and the difficulties of adaptation (of which altitude was not the least of obstacles). It is also a wager on the distinctive outlook opened by what took place in recent years in Argentina. And this dialogue between processesRead More

Social Capital

At the beginning of the third section of Book II of Capital, Marx distinguishes between the direct process of the production of capital and the total process of its reproduction. The former includes both the work process as well as the value-creating process. As we shall see, the latter includes both the process of consumption mediated by circulation, as well as the process of reproduction of capital itself. In the different forms assumed by capital within its cycle, and even more in the different forms assumed by this cycle, theRead More

Adam Smith says – and Marx comments on the accuracy of his observation -that the effective development of the productive power of labour begins when labour is transformed into wage labour, that is, when the conditions of labour confront it in the form of capital. One could go further and say that the effective development of the political power of labour really begins from the moment that labourers are transformed into workers, that is, when the whole of the conditions of society confront them as capital. We can see, then,Read More

El milagroso san Precario

Un santo arrastra multitudes en el sur de Europa. Sus fieles crecen día tras día mientras sus milagros se multiplican. Con gran fervor sus devotos se encomiendan a él. Es san Precario, patrón de los trabajadores a tiempo parcial, de las víctimas de la flexibilidad laboral, de quienes han dejado de ser trabajadores de cuello azul, de los pobres, de los nuevos sobrantes sociales. La leyenda habla de que san Precario nació en el seno de una familia italiana burguesa. Su padre, un influyente personaje con vínculos con la logiaRead More
