Introduction to Issue 6: Capitalism
Welcome to the final issue of this academic year. I don’t think there are many topics we could have covered which are as expansive, multifaceted and encompassing as capitalism. It was ambitious of us to produce an issue on such a complex topic in the midst of revision and essay writing, but the Canvas team recognised that the foundation block of our civilisation is in the midst of an existential crisis. Since 2008 many commentators have argued that capitalism is on life support. We wanted to write an issue on not only the theoretical basis of capitalism, but also its manifestation around the world, and on important aspects of it which are often ignored. I think this issue succeeds in covering a range of fascinating perspectives on a variety of topics connected to capitalism. We hope this stimulates debate and discussion as is Canvas’ aim.
We have placed the articles into themes. Please click below on a title that catches your interest.
