It begins when it becomes necessary to spend too much value to create and sustain demand— that is, to maintain consumers in a solvent state—and when too much is spent on military expenses to protect the market form. The crisis lasts until, somewhere, new technology, new ways of thinking, and new social relations generate demand more efficiently and can reduce the proportion of costs to total added value. It ends when a new form organizes, when a new center is founded, when technologies and social relations allow competing businesses on the market to replace a nonmarket service by a new mass-produced object on the market, thereby creating added value.
This technology, in turn, is the economic engine propelling supply and demand. Broadly speaking, there have been eight such forms since the 1300s. Because today we are entering into a new market form— the ninth—we need to understand what defines such a form. 24 THE C O M I N G W O R L D O R D E R AT THE center of each form is a dominant city where the essential financial, technical, cultural, and ideological (but not necessarily political) power is concentrated. An elite typically controls the market—the prices and the products; the elite accumulates the profits, controls the salaries and the workers, finances artists and explorers.
For example, American industrial productivity (still the strongest in the world) has grown at a rate that is three times 41 MILLENNIUM slower than that of Japan's, and two times slower than Europe's. Not one new product that has appeared in the past few years was made in the United States, with the notable exception of the microprocessor. Even traditional consumer goods are no longer manufactured in any competitive way. The United States exports almost no automobiles or televisions or household appliances made in the United States.
