Abstract

Karl Marx demonstrated that capitalism as a mode of production is a structurally unstable system; this has been illustrated by the recent period, especially the current crisis. This article is a contribution to a Marxian explanation of the current crisis, analyzing it as an expression of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall; it focuses on the first stage of the development of the crisis, understood as an outcome of the instability of capitalism and it identifies its specificities.
