Julia Barros rated it liked it Jun 26, Marx told the truth about capitalism but lied about communism. Like most of Arrighi’s work, this book isn’t an easy read, but arrighi payoff is huge. Arrighi’s book is an illuminating exploration of the rise of China as the new hegemonic state in global politics.
Furthermore, Xi Jinping’s sometimes forceful usage of economic diplomacy might indicate that Aram approach was or became purely pragmatic, rather than in any committed sense concerned with ‘the global south’.
Everything would then seem to point to a situation ongoing turbulence, both in the capitalist heartland and in peripheral states. Adam Smith in Beijing is the third instalment in an informal trilogy covering the spread and transformation of Capitalism, particularly focused on the XXth century.
The inter-connections of many wars, treaties, and other historical events are explained in great detail. The most pessimistic predictions of the anti-war movement have proven true. The simple fact giovannii that the future is not determined.
For the bulk of it, Arrighi makes an extremely convincing case that our country is in the midst of its terminal crisis as global capitalist hegemon. Jul 12, Ed rated it it was amazing. Adam Smith in Beijing: Sep 26, David M rated it it was amazing. Jan 01, Will rated it really liked it.

Esra Atici rated it it was amazing Aug 30, In the comfortably retrospective position ofit is also, unfortunately, clear that Hu Jintao’s commitment to a ‘New Socialist Countryside’ was quite as likely to be an accident on the capitalist road, as to be a legacy of China’s revolutionary tradition.

Adam Smith in Beijing: Lineages of the Twenty-First Century by Giovanni Arrighi
Seems to well exemplify the s Russian joke: Only a hundred pages or so in, give me time to digest Trivia Peki Adam Smith in Bei The economic section of the second part concerned with the downfall of US authority was particularly difficult, and aside from the urgent realisation that I needed to upgrade my understanding of financial and fiscal history, I am not sure I have gotten much out of it.
Bush’s invasion permanently destabilized the Middle East, letting loose a chaos that continues to spiral and threatens to engulf the globe.
The European model of bourgeois capital accumulation which Marx wrote about does not apply so much here. But don’t bother to read it if your mind is cast in stone, you are data averse, and paradigm locked in. Jan 27, John rated it it was amazing.
This is true even if Arrighi’s thesis never really becomes clear and he has to hedge considerably in his conclusions. I really appreciate the theoretical comparison between Adam Smith, best known as the founder of capitalism, and Karl Marx, best known for critiquing aram.
To the point where, for a large portion of the electorate, a clown like Trump could seem like a more plausible candidate for chief executive than many a professional politician as a side note, much as I lamented the result of the election last November, with time it seems increasingly clear that Hillary Clinton did indeed deserve to lose; here was someone who not only supported the invasion at the time, but has adamantly refused to learn anything from it, strongly advocating more bombing campaigns in Libya and Syria; it’s entirely plausible her giovnni policy smlth have been more disastrous than Trump’s.

Arrighi’s book ends with a discussion of the housing bubble, and if the author had lived a few months longer, I suspect he would have added an ‘I told you so!
Adam Smith en Pekín (Cuestiones de antagonismo)
While I disagree with the book, I found it really well-written, fascinating, and deeply hopeful about the world’s future. China’s developmental path, which he reads in an extended historical context, he takes to reflect much more accurately than Britain did in the XIXth century, the prescriptions of Adam Smith.
I think it’s to his credit that he doesn’t try prematurely to paper them over. My main problem with the book is how it defines capitalism through the lens of Adam Pskin and Braudel.
