This chapter explores the improbability of capital accumulation and, more generally, of the continued reproduction of ‘present society’. It assumes that crisis is an ever-present but abstract possibility in the capital relation and, hence, in its instantiation in capitalist social formations. Whether crises are actualized and, if so, their timing, forms of appearance and effects depend on many other factors, forces, and contingencies.
