Professor Offers Insightful Analysis of How Plutocracy Plays Covid; Theory Draws on Work of Conservative Economist, Lacan from 1970’s; but gives it a Marxist twist!

The professor builds on ideas of a fellow academic, Lacan, who wrote in the 1970’s, but whose ideas are germane for a critical analysis of capitalist economics and how it is used by the plutocracy in the Covid Crisis. Definitely for the highly intellectual with interest in economics and how Plutocracy exercises economic power.

Prof. Vighi’s views on COVID as an event of financialized capitalism I think is an absolute breakthrough. A state of emergency which provides the discourse and the economic policy tools that allow the capitalist social relations to reproduce beyond their historical limits the way Marx outlined them.
