The published internal debates on the nature of the post-war boom were very interesting. The period following the end of the post-war boom saw a number of changes in the composition of the capitalist productive regime, of the proletariat, and a changing role for the state in the era of state capitalism. The 'emerging' nations, 'workshop nations': despite capital limiting its geographic expansion (the advanced countries) it integrated the rest of the world- but in the framework of decadence, how do we understand the movement of productive industry to highly concentrated areas in the periphery?
"Metropolitan capitalism, sinking under the weight of a productive apparatus which it can no longer make full use of, cannot tolerate the constitution in the colonies of new industrialized capitalist states capable of competing with it, as was the case with the old colonies like Canada, Austrailia and America. Imperialism stands against any developed industrialization, any economic emancipation, any national bourgeois revolution." - Bilan 1937
