The Capital Order investigates the logic of austerity today (hikes in interest rates, cuts in wages, and social benefits) by looking at its dark origins in the aftermath of World War I. Focusing on 1920s liberal-democracy Britain and fascist Italy, the book argues that the profitable application of austerity to these dissimilar nations licensed its use as a capitalist “tool of class control”.
