>>452301>everybody in the bourgeoisie has too many conflicting interests.
You are individualizing the bourgeoisie and not grasping it has a class which is something outside the class itself in the form of an objective economic movement. Individual workers and individual bourgeois have never, in Marx, meant anything, they meant something to the extent of their relation to the rest of their class. Individuals sometimes act opposite to that of their class but these are simply appearances, but at the social level the bourgeoisie and the working class collectively act as two opposing classes.
>central planning by the state
Central planning is not what you think it is. It isn’t some abstract thing that only exists within the state. And I don’t know what your obsession with the state is since Marx only spoke of the state has an institution composed for and by the dominating class. The state isn’t something existing outside of civil society and so whether the state has economic directors or civil administrations and companies, it doesn’t matter. Also as regards infrastructure spending, Bonaparte spent a lot of money on public works in France and built bridges and roads and workshops for unemployed workers, did Marx ever call him socialist?
>No neoliberalism did not solve the crisis of over production
I didn’t say neoliberalism solved overproduction, I simply said that financialization was the sensible step for all advanced economies that wanted to AVOID the worse blows from overproduction. Now the big issue is tons of financial capital, without enough commodities attached to this “fictitious capital”. The theory is for these people is that this fictitious capital is there for “future” investments, future commodities and future advancements in production so that’s where you are right, in that their theory ended up being bullshit mostly due to the fact that this finance capital is just used in speculation rather than investment into new technologies and new production so any new advancements in the means of production are squandered because they never see the proper financial support.
