Chapter 2 Fantasizing authoritarian capitalism: a brief history
Restricted access

Chapter 2: This chapter looks specifically at how economic globalization is helping to produce a similarly globalizing political authoritarianism. What are the specific discourses associated with contemporary globalization that creates the conditions for wide-ranging forms of despotism and political repression? Specifically, how are these processes producing rather appealing capitalist fantasies of political authoritarianism nationally. It investigates these concerns through providing a theoretical and historical overview of this relationship of capitalism to authoritarianism.
