Economic Crisis, War and Revolution



In this third edition of the booklet "Economic Crisis War and Revolution" we add three more articles taken from the People’s March website. The first two appeared in the June 2003 issue of the magazine while the last appeared in the January 2004 issue of that magazine.

International developments are taking place at such speed, that there have been major developments since this booklet first appeared in early 2002. So, there is need to update events. Yet most of the predictions made in that first article are coming out to be true. Primarily the fact that this economic crisis is deeper than any other in the post World War II scenario has proved to be correct. Also that this will lead to growing contention amongst the imperialist powers, with greater possibilities of wars, has turned out correct. In March 2003 US imperialism aggressed on Iraq. It then immediately threatened North Korea, Syria and Iran. Temporarily bogged down in Iraq due to the heroic resistance of its people, it is at present, quiet on other military fronts. But its aggressive policies are bound to continue, particularly as its economic crisis deepens.

We hope these four articles will help the reader get a better insight into the fast changing world events, in order to understand the dynamics of what is taking place, and therefore how best to face it. We welcome comments and any suggestions that will help better the analysis for future editions.
