RETURN OF MARXIAN MACRO-DYNAMICS IN EAST ASIA

Editors: Masao Ishikura, Hitotsubashi University, Japan, Seongjin Jeong, Gyeongsang
National University, South Korea, and Minqi Li, University of Utah, USA

The economic growth in East Asia has been believed to be the model case of the triumph of capitalism. Some progressive economists, for example, the developmental state theorists, also praised the East Asian model as the progressive alternative to neoliberal market fundamentalism, arguing that they are the outcomes of state-led development.

However, with the sudden advent of the 'Lost Decade of Japan' in the 1990s, and the ensuing 'IMF Crisis' of South Korea in 1997, and now the imminent 'hard landing' of the Chinese economy, the East Asian miracle story is quickly becoming a thing of the past. East Asia has now become an epicentre of the contradictions and crisis of global capitalism. Today, deepening economic crises, exacerbation of social polarization, rising popular discontents, and escalating geopolitical tensions are common to China, Japan and Korea. Moreover, East Asia has been at the centre of global ecological contradictions. Indeed, East Asia has now become the typical place of Marxian macro-dynamics.

This important and timely volume brings together experts in political economy from across the globe, to comment on the return of Marxian macro-dynamics in East Asia. The contributions explore macro-dynamics, the role of the state and hegemony in the context of transnational capitalism, and Marxian alternatives for East Asia.

Statement of Purpose: This RESEARCH annual is founded on analyzing society in a manner consistent with the importance of the role of class. International in scope, the annual volumes deal primarily with economic and political issues and the unity between them. Both theoretical and empirical works are included. While published papers must be appropriate for developing class analysis of society, they need not be explicitly marxist. The RESEARCH can accept papers up to 20,000 and thus, in addition to usual journal length papers, is appropriate for work which is not book length, yet is substantial. For submissions, please send your paper, double-spaced type with noting as endnotes followed by a reference list, to the editor either electronically or three copies to the postal address above. Usual practice is review by two competent persons, on a double-blind basis, within a relatively short period of time.

"Collections like Research in Political Economy provide a forum for ...
serious radical scholarship so grotesquely absent from most mainstream
periodicals"
-- Richard B. DuBoff, Monthly Review

"... has played a very positive role in developing the scientific Marxist agenda"
-- Ajit Sinha, Science & Society
