Capital as Power: A Study of Order and Creorder
by Jonathan Nitzan, Shimshon Bichler
Publisher: Routledge 2009
Number of pages: 463

It has little to do with utility or abstract labour, and it extends far beyond machines and production lines. Capital, the authors claim, represents the organized power of dominant capital groups to reshape – or creorder – their society.
