Beginning with the key changes brought about in the economy by advanced technology and organisational and institutional innovations, the author elucidates their impact on industrial systems, accumulation, firms and the processes of European integration. This approach enables the reader to establish the links in the conceptual jungle to real processes and to chart clearly, by eliminating chaos and chance factors, the interlocking grid of political destabilization and economic marginalization that the advance of capitalist globalization has introduced in all countries.
