Die falsche Antwort auf die amerikanische Frage
Eine Replik auf Immanuel Wallerstein
Schlagworte:Wallerstein, USA, Hegemonie, Neoliberalismus
The article replies to the text of Immanuel Wallerstein published in PROKLA 133 (Dec. 2003), where Wallerstein argued that the end of American hegemony was imminent. Wallerstein’s reading of recent world history and his depiction of the trajectory and movement of social forces in the emerging world order is fundamentally criticised: His analysis is much too speculative and ignores fundamental and structural aspects of American power, including strategic capabilities, and their links to transnational political and class formations.
