Educating Capitalists: A Rejoinder to Wright and Tsakalotos
Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies
Socio-Economic Review, Vol. 2, pp. 425-438, 2004
The paper takes up the basic issue, addressed by both commentators, of whether one can speak of economic performance as a general interest superseding the special interests of groups or classes. It suggests a dynamic concept of capitalist class interests that allows for a contingent, precarious, and perhaps increasingly less feasible reconciliation between general and special interests in economic performance.
