What collapsed on September 15, 2008, was not just a bank, or a financial system, or even a house of cards built on a debt mountain. What collapsed that day was an entire political philosophy and economic system, a way of thinking about and living in the world. The question now is what will replace the global capitalism that fell apart in the autumn of 2008.
