FIGUEROA SEPULVEDA, Víctor M.. La crisis global: Viejas y nuevas contradicciones. Prob. Des [online]. 2010, vol.41, n.161, pp.193-211. ISSN 0301-7036.

The author argues in this article that the present crisis is unusual in that it involves two distinct and profound contradictions. On the one hand, inherent conflicts related to capital have appeared. In this sense, the causes of the present crisis are fundamentally no different from those that gave rise to the great convulsions of the 20th century. All crises speak of class relations that obstruct production because they lead to a fall in profits. However, on the other hand, today capital has entered a sharp contradiction with nature, completely conditioning the route that will have to be followed to achieve a durable solution to the problems faced by accumulation. In the past, every new period of growth was based on technological changes that supported both the redefinition of class relations and a greater exploitation of nature. Today, a sustainable industrial design must include the protection of the environment.

Palavras-chave : crises and class relations; neoliberal strategy; productivity; research and development; climate change.
