The Tendency of ‘Dialectical’ Accounts of the Crisis to Fail.

“Nikolai Bukharin likewise fails to provide a serious account of the theory of breakdown and simply ends up with nebulous phrasemongering about ‘contradictions’. Bukharin tears all the threads that tie the breakdown of capitalism to actual tendencies of economic development … The exactness of Bukharin’s analysis is amazing. He obviously believes that pure assertions will do by way of proof. Bukharin calls his ‘contradiction’ phraseology dialectical. The lack of any concrete proof-procedure, the complete inability to conduct a theoretical analysis, is covered up with the term dialectical and this is the ‘solution’ of the problem.” (Grossman 17)
