dc.descriptionThe starting point of this paper is a discussion of an apparently neglected aspect of Marx's theory of surplus value and profit suggesting that finance capital can temporarily be decoupled from the productive sector in its hunting for profits. Then follows a discussion of the basis in the real economy for profit seeking and accumulation of finance capital in the last three decades, viz. the dominance of shareholder value, low wage policy combined with mortgage (re-)financing particularly in the US, the turn to fully funded pensions, and the rising foreign deficits and debt of the US. The paper next discusses new means of financial profit seeking, viz. credit derivatives, hedge funds, private equity funds and the increasing use of leverage within the financial sector. In the final section, it is argued that the present crisis is essentially a crisis of overaccumulation of finance capital which has turned into a general economic crisis characterised by increasingly deficient demand. The paper concludes that what is at stake is not only regulations, but the entire accumulation model of financialised capitalism.-
