How Will Capitalism End? is a collection of essays on capitalism after the erosion of postwar stability: on the capitalist crisis, how it may continue, and what may come after it. Special attention is paid to Europe and the European Union, as one local or regional manifestation of the global economic and social drama that is our present. A central theme is capitalist democracy and its dismantlement that began in the 1980s and has gathered momentum after the apparently never-ending crisis of 2008 ff. Another issue is how the disciplines of sociology and political science need to reform themselves in order to rediscover and properly conceptualize the historical nature and the ongoing transformation of contemporary capitalism, by reactivating classical theories of political economy and capitalist development, from Marx to Sombart and the Historical School, to Weber, Keynes, Schumpeter and others.
