    The Dollar as World Money.Maria N. Ivanova - 2013 - Science and Society 77 (1):44 - 71.
    Marx's theory of money can provide insights into the entrenchment of the U. S. dollar as a modern-day equivalent of world money. The domestic underpinnings of global monetary standards determined the inflationary bias of the Bretton Woods system and the systemic deflationary tendencies of the subsequent non-system. There is a strong connection between the tendency toward systemic illiquidity, characteristic of financialized capitalism, which has to be periodically cured by an expansion of government debt, and the institutionalization of the international dollar (...)

    The 21st Century: Is There An Alternative (to Socialism)?Minqi Li - 2013 - Science and Society 77 (1):10 - 43.
    In the light of the great capitalist failures over the past two decades, it is necessary to reevaluate both the historical performance of, and historical justification for, socialism. Even if one follows the logic of mainstream economic theory, there is no clear theoretical case why socialism is necessarily inferior to capitalism. There is no clear evidence that the socialist economies performed worse than the capitalist economies in term of economic growth. But there is evidence that the socialist economies met the (...)

    Class Consciousness or Class Composition?Salar Mohandesi - 2013 - Science and Society 77 (1):72 - 97.
    Class is perhaps the most central concept in the Marxist tradition. But it is also one of the most ambiguous. Part of the difficulty stems from Marx's own creative use of the concept to refer to both economic categories as well as political subjects. The tension between these two definitions of class is central to two models that have been historically mobilized to productively resolve that tension: the model of class consciousness, on the one hand, and that of class composition, (...)

    Women's Liberation and Gender Obligation Equality in Urban China: Work/Family Experiences of Married Individuals in the 1950s.Jiping Zuo - 2013 - Science and Society 77 (1):98 - 125.
    Data from in-depth interviews of 80 elderly women and men, conducted during the 2000-2003 period in urban China, shed light on married individuals' lived experiences with women's liberation and gender equality under Chinese state socialism during the 1950s. When individuals' experiences are placed in a broad historical context, urban Chinese women's liberation appears as an integral part of nationalist and class campaigns and attendant freedom from family patriarchy. Subsequently, women's family autonomy and individual freedom yielded to renewed collective efforts channeled (...)
