PRADO, ELEUTÉRIO F. S.. Post-Large Scale Industry and Neoliberalism. Brazil. J. Polit. Econ. [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.1, pp.11-28. ISSN 1809-4538.

Capitalism is coming from the modern industry phase to the post-modern industry phase. In modern industry, as was said in Capital, the main material content of capital relation was physical assets (systems of machines); in post-modern industry, the main forms of capital are impressed on intangible assets (scientific knowledge and technologies). As Marx in Grundrisse previewed it, now capital appropriates not only live labor, but general intellect too. From this point of view, neoliberalism and capital globalization are not viewed here, immediately, as results of financial capital domination, but as expressions of capital and labor contradiction in the post-large scale industry.

Keywords : Neoliberalism; post-large scale industry; totalitarism; economic ideology.
