This unit examines the ways in which the economic activities of capitalism are 'embedded' within a much broader social structure. To do this, you will study the nature, structure, and relations of capitalism’s core institutions such as capital, labour, households, and the state. You will consider the conflict, contradiction, and cohesion inherent in the relationships between these institutions with respect to the racialised, classed, gendered and environmental processes of capital accumulation.
