Link dump, mostly. Social reproduction on my mind, among other reasons tied to the discussion on this post and thoughts on the late 19th/early 20th century US accident crisis.

“There are a variety of dimensions that crisis can be assessed. I will list just four: (1) a crisis can be of capital’s or the working class’ social reproduction; (2) a crisis can be a crisis of capitalism or a crisis within capitalism; (3) a crisis can be planned or unplanned; (4) a crisis can arise from chronic long-term tendencies (the falling rate of profit; overproduction) or be the product of a transient conjuncture. Of course, the disjunctions are inclusive not exclusive. Not taking the possible inclusivity of the disjunction into account, there are 16 possible crisis types that are available.”
