Two economists trace the march of capitalism, aided and abetted by colonialism, from the world wars to the advent of globalization and beyond

The Patnaiks are a duo of renowned scholars and distinguished professors from Jawaharlal Nehru University. More importantly, they have kept the fires of the left alive with their contributions over the years. Their book, A theory of imperialism, published in 2016 was provocative. It provided a framework for the emergence of imperialism and the causes of its persistence. The effort in this book was “to establish… a continuity between the colonial period and now, notwithstanding the fact that Third World countries are no longer ruled by foreign powers”.

Capital and imperialism adopts the same or similar economic logic or matrix, but seeks to extend the scope to cover a longer historical horizon. They divide the years into five periods, as shown in Chapter 6. The first is the colonial period before World War I. The second is the interwar period. Then comes the post-Second World War, “the golden age of capitalism”. The fourth encompasses the era of globalization. The last concerns the last few years, which also mark the impasse of globalization. During this period, they recount the march of capitalism, aided or abetted by imperialism. If they consider that there is an unchanging relationship between the metropolis and the periphery, they sometimes modify the matrix to prove continuity.

An open system

Unlike capitalist economists and even Karl Marx, the authors argue that capitalism is not a closed system. It is an open and constantly expanding system that needs a pre-capitalist periphery to support it with the supply of primary products. Their supplies are neither elastic nor inexhaustible. There will be substantial price increases and inflation that can only be reduced by deflationary policies. Moreover, capitalism needs a special framework as described in Chapter 4. There are other requirements such as keeping the economy open to trade, freedom of capital, pursuit of deflationary policies, etc. ‘, which implies the subjugation of the periphery. Although in recent years, some of the constituents governing their relationship, such as reliance on primary commodities, metropolitan reach, etc. weakened, the authors argue: “It continues to be essential for capitalism, not just as a legacy of their past. but also as a requirement for the present.

The Patnaik do not agree that capitalism has changed, as well as its role and its modes of functioning or exploitation. In recent years, many left-wing writers have taken a soft view and argue that imperialism has lost its relevance. Prabhat Patnaik himself lamented this in a previous article. (“What happened to imperialism?”, Monthly review, November 1990.) It is also mentioned in this book, because it asserts that capitalism has not changed and must be fought by a coalition of peasants and workers. His fear is that such ideological retreat will strengthen right-wing forces, for example fascism, in the Global South. The authors advocate vigilance and assert that “while the content of this relationship has remained unchanged, the form of it has changed over time”. This book is an attempt to keep the debate on imperialism alive. How do they do?

Changing global trade

The introductory chapters postulate an approach to money or wealth that is specific to capitalism. He is rigorous and knowledgeable. However, its importance fades as they move on to other aspects of capitalism. The framework of capitalism, as previously described, falls back on a previous history and seems frozen in time. Not to mention the rise of the Asian tigers, India and China, nor with the changing structures of trade flows, the rise of supply chains and, finally, the emergence of free trade agreements. multilateral and bilateral exchange. Their argument does not capture the dynamics or complexity of the current trade.

The analysis of colonialism before the First World War is an in-depth study of the exploitation (drainage) of India by Great Britain. The modality was to intercept all external revenues and pay the equivalent in rupees to the producers/exporters from the taxes levied in India. The account of the “colonial transfers” (chapter 10) is meticulous and offers an estimated value until 1947 of 1,950 billion dollars. More distressingly, they offer an account of the Great Famine in Bengal which was caused by “the extreme compression of mass demand to increase forced savings” to fight the war.

This critic has doubts about the role of imperialism in the post-war years, as the book recounts. If the Patnaiks had abandoned the straitjacket approach and applied the principles of realist schools and conflict resolution, they would have arrived at different perceptions of imperialism. Even the stubborn IMF/World Bank have had to change the conditionalities of their loans under pressure from developing countries. The IMF no longer swears by “austerity” or “budget deficits”. These changes are due to changes in power structures and the declining power of the United States as well as the rise of the South, particularly India and China. Although I may disagree with them on some of their arguments, that does not take away from the fact that the book is a scholarly contribution to imperialism and its far-reaching scope.

Capital and imperialism: theory, history and present; Utsa Patnaik, Prabhat Patnaik, Tulika Books, ₹1,200.

The critic writes on economic and strategic issues.

Do you feel like you need a bigger and better TV to enjoy the Super Bowl? Super Bowl LVI kicks off on February 13. That means you have about a month to find a big screen with the best picture, sound, smart TV, and game options.

If you have bought a tv Over the past five years, you’ve probably seen the terms LED, QLED, and OLED mentioned in product descriptions. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. LED TVs have a backlight layer that brightens and dims your TV’s pixels as you watch your favorite TV shows and movies.

QLED stands for Quantum Light Emitting Diode. It is a variant of LED technology. QLED TVs include quantum dot film layers. When hit by a backlight, these tiny dots emit individually colored lights that help create a more vibrant image.

Unlike LED and QLED TVs, OLED TVs do not have a backlight layer. Instead, each pixel is its own tiny LED light that can independently change its brightness and even turn off completely. Because each of their pixels works independently, these TVs have elite picture quality and the darkest shadows.

If you’re watching on a small screen, most of these qualities will be pretty much the same. So if you’re buying an OLED you should consider a larger screen, so you can actually see the difference in image.

We’ve found huge OLED TVs that have great reviews. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to upgrade to a bigger and better screen for family movies or for the NFL playoffs and the ensuing Super Bowl LVI, we found some great deals on OLED TVs from top brands including LG and Sony.

LIC IPO Update: The initial public offering, or IPO, of the Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India is expected to be launched very soon. The operations for these are in full swing and we can only wait for the insurer to announce the opening date of the IPO. Amid all the paperwork and other processes regarding the LIC IPO, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman reviews its progress. LIC’s IPO, billed as the largest in the country’s history, is expected to hit markets by March, the government said. However, the exact date or price range of the issue has yet to be announced by the government.

Here are the most important things we know so far about LIC’s IPO which is slated to launch in March of this year:

– The Union Minister of Finance reviewed on Friday the progress of the planned divestment of the country’s largest insurer, LIC. Union Finance Minister Smt. @Nsitharaman reviewed the progress of LIC’s IPO in New Delhi today in the presence of @SecyDIPAM; Secretary @DFS_India and senior officials @LICIndiaForever and @FinMinIndia via VC, “the finance ministry tweeted.

– LIC’s IPO is expected to file its draft documents with the Sebi by the third week of January, according to a Times of India report. This is in line with the government’s claims to launch the IPO by the end of fiscal 2022. The IPO of LIC is crucial to achieving the divestment target of Rs 1.75 crore set for the current year (April-March). So far this fiscal year, Rs 9,330 crore has been wiped out by the divestment of PSUs. The government is in the process of deciding how much of the government stake will be sold through the IPO.

In addition, it is possible to subscribe to any public offering in India if you have a valid Demat account. Accordingly, policyholders should ensure that they have a valid mat account.

– The central government has refuted the allegations regarding the IPO of LIC. The Center last month dismissed media speculation that the government is unlikely to propose the IPO of LIC in the current fiscal year ending in March 2022. The Department’s secretary investment and public asset management said in a tweet that the plan was underway. of course, and said the reports were not correct.

– The government has selected Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas as legal advisor for LIC’s next mega-IPO. In addition to the legal advisor, the government has appointed 10 major global and Indian investment banks to manage the initial public offering of India’s Life Insurance Corporation (LIC). She also selected Concept Communications as advertising agency and Kfintech as registrar and share transfer agent for the IPO. The Department of Investment and Public Asset Management said it has appointed Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citigroup, Nomura, Bank of America Securities, JM Financial, SBI Caps, Kotak Mahindra Capital, ICICI Securities and Axis Capital to manage the ‘Initial Public Offering.

Wednesday January 5, 2022, 7:00 p.m., The Sydney Coliseum, West HQ, Rooty Hill

THE LITTLE PRINCE brings joy and wonder as we return to witness live performances.

The Little Prince book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is the inspiration of the director Anne Tournie to create this wonderful play. Turned in this work, explores the emotions that the story generated for her when she discovered the book for the first time. Using her expertise, skills and experience, she presents a layered interpretation that is a visual treat.

The Little Prince embodied by Lionel Zalachas takes aviator Aurélien Bednarek / narrator Chris Mouron on an adventure, recounting his travels through the solar system. These stories explore the themes of friendship, love, loss, loneliness with the desire to see beyond the face value of things.

The Narrator and the Little Prince meet the Rose, the King, the Fox, the Drunk, the Teaser, the Serpent, the Businessman, the Vain Man and the Needle, played by Laurisee Sulty, Dylan Barone , Andre Kamienski, Marcin Janiak, Srilata Ray, Antony César, Adrien Picaut, Joan Bertrand and Marie Menuge. The skill, expertise and finesse of this casting is a joy to see.

BWW REVIEW: Guest critic Kym Vaitiekus shares thoughts on THE LITTLE PRINCE

Zalachas brings energy, athleticism to the role and embodies Tournie’s vision for the Little Prince. It’s sublime to see his performance. Seeing the Little Prince give a more in-depth answer to his meetings would be beneficial for the public. Especially for those who don’t know the news.

Co-director Chris Mouron and their libretto adaptation are performed with passion, enthusiasm and enthusiasm. The adapted words are projected in a discreet manner allowing the audience to gain a full understanding of the storytelling.

Composer Terry Tuck skillfully created the music that sets the tone. It beautifully sums up the emotional moments and takes the audience on this passionate journey.

Tournie has superbly combined the elements of choreography, music, screenings and acrobatics to create a beautiful, sophisticated, engaging and stunning theatrical experience. I have never seen acrobatics so perfectly interwoven in the narrative of the performance. These choices are magical. Tournie expertly synthesized all the ingredients of the performance which create many emotional and alluring scenes.

BWW REVIEW: Guest critic Kym Vaitiekus shares thoughts on THE LITTLE PRINCE

In these travel-restricted times, you can now catch a taste of Broadway. This production is presented by the Broadway Entertainment Group and they continue this tour on their way to New York.

This superb work was at the Sydney Opera House in May 2021. It is now at the Sydney Coliseum in Rooty Hill, until January 23. This place is beautifully designed and a pleasure to visit. I especially appreciate that the theater auditorium has reclined seats that allow you to see clearly over your heads in front.

There were some very young audience members who would get restless at times, I think this is due to the sophistication of the play, but with that in mind it’s a show that many can enjoy.

If you like the news or the idea of ​​seeing with the heart, I highly recommend you and your loved ones to catch this wonderful interpretation of The Little Prince.

A new social media policy for the Kashmir region has been developed by the Jammu and Kashmir police.

They recently ran ads in local newspapers warning people about the risks of misuse of social media sites.

People are urged not to post any contentious content on social media.

The ad appeared in many local newspapers as well as on social media.

“Anyone who shares or transmits messages or videos that fuel terror, violence [or] causing alarm or panic on social media platforms (Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc.) can be seen as acting with the intention of causing terror and unrest in public order situations ”, reads one in advertising.

According to the Jammu and Kashmir police, these advertisements and awareness-raising efforts will reduce the number of young people joining terrorist organizations, leading to improved public order.

This is nothing new, it has been done by the police in every state, and we are doing it too. No one can publish fake news, glorify activism, spread rumors, or threaten anyone. Whether it’s Facebook or any other social media website, it’s illegal. Anything that encourages activism or fear among people is a crime under the law. We are awakening people first, and in the next step we will take action, ”said IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar.

Security agencies have long claimed that social media is used to promote terrorism in Kashmir.

It was also a source of public order problems in various parts of the Kashmir Valley.

According to law enforcement sources, Pakistan was unable to deploy terrorists in the valley with rifles and ammunition due to a narrow security gate and surveillance along the Line of Control.

In the Kashmir Valley, security personnel have taken a more robust approach to counterterrorism operations.

The police source added that terrorists across the border are using social media as a tool to radicalize Kashmiri youth.

There is ample evidence from security agencies that agents across the border are using the internet to train local Kashmiri youth to be terrorists.

And the security forces believe that by reviewing this policy, they would be able to put an end to these incidents.

The Los Angeles Dodgers strengthened their playing position on July 21 with a trade to Billy McKinney of the New York Mets in exchange for Minor League outfielder Carlos Rincon.

McKinney started the year with the Milwaukee Brewers before being traded to the Mets in late May. Between the two teams, he reached .213 / .282 .415 with eight homers.

McKinney made his Dodgers debut on July 22 against the San Francisco Giants and went 1-3 with a brace. He went on to appear in 21 of the club’s next 23 games, making 15 starts to right field.

Despite only hitting 0.204 / 0.290 / 0.383 over time, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts felt McKinney was providing the club with quality hitters.

“The value is he’s a good drummer. In the eight hole, he’s not there to attack the offense, ”Roberts said of McKinney at the time. “He’s there to take good hitters, see the pitches and overturn the formation, which he did. “

McKinney continued to enjoy regular playing time until September 10, when he was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hip impingement.

The 27-year-old was not in another regular season game but was on the Dodgers’ playoff roster for the Wild Card Game and the National League Division Series. He’s only registered one batting in three combined games against the St. Louis Cardinals and Giants.

In 37 games with the Dodgers during the regular season, McKinney produced 0.146 / 0.276 / 0.232 with two doubles, a triple, a homer and seven RBIs in 98 appearances at home.

McKinney’s climax in 2021

McKinney’s best performance of the 2021 season came on June 9 as a member of the Mets when he went 3-on-5 with two homers and five RBIs in a 14-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Outlook 2022

On November 20, the Dodgers named McKinney and Zach Reks to make room for Jacob Amaya, Michael Grove, Eddys Leonard, James Outman and Jorbit Vivas on their 40-man roster.

LA has done this to prevent the aforementioned minor leagues from potentially being selected in the 2021 draft rule 5, which could take place as soon as a new collective agreement is in place.

Three days later, McKinney and Reks were traded to the Texas Rangers for cash consideration. McKinney has not since been tendered and is now free to sign with any team.

Respectful of nature. Green. Without toxins. These are just a few words spotted in billions of eco-bleached advertisements, regularly run to describe sustainable cleaning products. The problem is, those hooks on your laundry detergent or soap may not always be entirely true, as the use of such words is unregulated. To purify the air, we all need to become fully aware of which brands are legitimate and learn ways to make daily cleaning more durable and less toxic.

To stimulate you, we’ve dug for you. Below are seven cleaning products from brands on Amazon that are increasingly biodegradable and clean their products. They are at the forefront of the green cleaning game and tick all the required boxes: no toxic chemicals, biodegradable ingredients, made from plants, completely plastic-free, refillable and with recyclable packaging. They don’t feel too different from what you’re already using and are quite affordable.

Not all of us are ready to go all the way and swap a bottle of bleach for white vinegar and lemon, so investing in environmentally friendly products is a good place to start. Their use not only prevents phosphates and other harsh chemicals from entering your home, but they are also more environmentally friendly.

The products we have chosen here are verified to be durable and have received many rave reviews from Amazon customers. They also smell great (like perfumes that use natural plant extracts for scent), so say goodbye to hospital smells. Use this cheat sheet to go green when you enter 2022.

Packed with plant-based enzymes that break down fats and starch-based stains, Common Good’s lightly scented and beautifully packaged detergent is refillable at any of their charging stations around the world. As one reviewer put it: “It’s very focused and it works! I have removed a lot of stains and it meets strict requirements to get the environmental working group seal.

Dropps Dishwasher Detergent Pods: Lemon

These dishwasher pods give your dishes a fresh lemon scent and less smelly chemicals. One enthusiastic reviewer was convinced their dishwasher was to blame until they tried them out. “I’m not one of those people who do the dishes in running water first,” the reviewer noted. “And they came out PERFECT, for the first time EVER.”

The New York Laundress Alternative to All-Purpose Bleach

Gentle and color-safe, this non-toxic, biodegradable bleach is a wonderfully fragrance-free alternative to chlorine. “This product managed to remove a mysterious orange food stain from my 7-year-old white / red shirt,” said an Amazon reviewer, adding that she was “quite impressed”.

The Honest Company Honest Disinfectant Spray

The Honest Company Honest Disinfectant Spray

Made from plant-based ingredients and packaged in recyclable materials, this spray not only kills germs, but also cold and flu viruses (and those dreaded others). One reviewer said she liked the fact that it was unscented as other antibacterial sprays she tried contained bleach and “the smell it gave made me ache of head”.

Puracy Natural Dish Soap, Green Tea & Lime

This dish soap contains herbal ingredients that produce a deep cleansing and degreasing foam without sulfates, and we will be taking green tea and lime on disgusting soap scent every day. An Amazon reviewer said he expects a more watery texture than regular dish soaps, and she likes how it can “make 64-ounce refills use just a little less plastic.”

Evolved By Nature Liquid Hand Soap Refill

Free from chemicals that dry out and damage the skin, this hand soap is formulated with pure silk in liquid form and a cocktail of 12 natural and biodegradable ingredients. “I love the feel of these soaps on my skin,” wrote a nurse, explaining that her hands are dry from constant disinfection and that she loves the fact that this hand soap is super hydrating.

Clorox Compostable Cleaning Wipes

Clorox Compostable Cleaning Wipes

Clorox Wipes are a household staple we all know so well, and voila, there is now a Natural, recyclable version made from plant fibers. “I love that these wipes work just as well as regular wipes, but are a little better for the planet,” said one reviewer, who also noted that other compostable wipes he had tried left a soapy residue.

Montreal, Quebec – (Newsfile Corp. – December 30, 2021) – Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSXV: MN) (FSE: 9SC) (OTCQB: MNXXF) (the “Company” or “MN”) is pleased to announce that 2021 has been another year of significant growth for the Company, highlighted by the advancement of its Battery Hill manganese project located near Woodstock, New Brunswick.

Martin Kepman, CEO of Manganese X says,

  • The price of manganese metal increased 100% during the year and performed very well among the minor metals sectors.

  • Experts predict that from next year there will be a shortage of high purity manganese. This shortage will continue and by 2030 current production will only represent one-fifth of projected demand.

  • Manganese X Energy Corp is poised to take advantage of this situation and become a major supplier for electric vehicles and emergency energy storage needs in North America in the near future.

Manganese X Energy 2022 strategies and objectives

  • Successfully complete the Battery Hill Project PEA and proceed directly to the Pre-Feasibility or Feasibility Study.

  • Continue negotiations with a multinational company to explore the future development and sales of our value-added manganese materials in North American markets

  • Continue to aggressively advance the development of its Battery Hill manganese property and the innovative and cost-effective metallurgical process developed to produce high purity manganese products for the rapidly growing North American lithium-ion battery market.

  • JV partner Purebiotic Air Corp anticipates a request for FDA certification of the products. The development of a pilot plant is planned. The upgrade of the HVAC patent disbursement unit is planned.

Highlights of 2021 activities

Wood PLC selected to carry out a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on our Battery Hill project

  • The Company selected Wood PLC to perform a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on our Battery Hill project located near Woodstock, New Brunswick. PEA will assess the commercial viability of producing premium, high purity manganese products for the electric vehicle (EV) and emergency energy storage sectors.

  • The PEA is expected to be completed within 60-90 days. All the first indications are positive and we remain very optimistic about the exceptional results.

  • Martin Kepman, CEO of Manganese X Energy, said: “The company has the potential to become a significant global player in high purity manganese markets. The economic study took longer than expected, but we have worked with and authorized Wood PLC and Kemetco Research sufficient time to study all aspects of the PEA to ensure that the results of the project are fully maximized. “

Publication of our mineral resource estimate in accordance with NI-43-101, in preparation for the PEA

Manganese X Energy retained the services of Mercator Geological Services to complete the mineral resource estimate for the Battery Hill project.

  • The large mineral resource base underscores the potential of the project to support long-term production.

  • The Mineral Resource Estimate was prepared in accordance with the ICM Defining Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (2014) and identified 34.86 million tonnes of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources grading 6 , 42% Mn, plus an additional 25.91 million tonnes of inferred mineral resources grading 6.66. % Mn. The mineral resource estimate uses a cut-off grade of 2.5% Mn which reflects total operating costs with “reasonable prospects for economic extraction”.

  • Cut-off sensitivity analysis of the Battery Hill deposit indicates 12.25 million tonnes of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources at 8.77% Mn and 10.61 million tonnes of Inferred Mineral Resources at a grade of 9 .05% Mn using a cut-off content of 7% Mn.

Manganese X Energy continued to improve Battery Hill’s processing plans for scalable, cost-effective production of high-quality battery materials essential for the electric vehicle and stored energy markets.

  • Kemetco Research Inc.’s Phase 3 metallurgical work has resulted in advanced processing technology with significant cost reductions in the production of high quality battery materials for electric vehicles and stored energy applications. This step was a critical part of the completion of the Company’s PSE, as cost-effective metallurgical processing is a key economic component of the project.

Manganese X Energy has transferred the graphite assets of LAB to its shareholders through a new subsidiary known as Graphano Energy Ltd. under the symbol GEL (TSX.V).

  • Graphano began operations on Thursday, September 30, 2021. The Lac Aux Bouleaux Graphite (“LAB”) property consists of 14 mining claims in a contiguous block totaling 738.12 hectares near the town of Mont Laurier in southern Quebec.

Manganese subsidiary X Energy and joint venture partner Purebiotic Air Corp have received positive update data on Virginia State University testing on a significant range of pathogens and biofilms, including COVID-19

  • With these new studies and previous research once again confirming the effectiveness of PureBiotics technologies, VSU is adding additional test sites to its ongoing study. These tests will determine how economically viable the PureBiotics formulations are in eliminating the risk of infections, with the added benefits of providing safer, cleaner and odor-free facilities.

  • When tested against a large group of chemical disinfectants currently used in hospitals, PureBiotics formulations were found to be 78-92% more effective,

  • The company will soon announce a series of product registrations, certifications and regulatory applications of great interest. The company makes no express or implied representation that it has developed a COVID-19 air management solution at this time.
