Book review


For at least 40 years, the study of political economy has mainly been a comparative effort. Literature has made important contributions to the study of the complex nexus of economics and social institutions outlining different models of capitalism. After the great crisis of 2008, a renewed interest in capitalism has been observed, and the debate focused more on its common trends than its varieties. Concerning sociology, Greta Krippner’s Capitalizing on Crisis and Wolfgang Streeck’s Buying Time are part of this new wave of works that follow the tradition of the great classical political economists, such as Malthus, Marx, and especially Polanyi, in formulating general laws and attempting to understand the crisis as a product of the internal contradictions of capitalism.
