Three Crises of Capitalism: The Great Depression to the Present

Three major crises of capitalism have affected large parts of the world over the last 100 years: the Great Depression of the 1930s , the Oil Shock of the 1970s, and the Global Financial Crisis of 2008.

Each crisis both undid and remade the economy and many of the fundamental assumptions about the way politics and society should work.
