National governments responded to the 2008 financial crash with a series of unprecedented bank bailouts and stimulus spending measures. These steps have only created new contradictions, with the latest stage of the crisis being driven by sovereign debt fears caused by mounting budget deficits and debt. Spurred on by the pressures of the global financial markets, governments internationally are imposing brutal austerity programs, making the working class pay for the crisis through cuts to public spending, wages, jobs and living conditions.
A Marxist analysis demonstrates that the cause of these developments lies within the nature of the global capitalist system itself. Resolution of the crisis requires the overturn rather than the reform of the system. This requires the building of an independent political movement of the working class on an international basis armed with a revolutionary and socialist perspective.
