A quick plug for a newish journal, The Point, established by three graduate students at Chicago. Their latest print edition has a symposium of essays on the topic 'What is the Left for?', with contributions from me (plug plug) and Erik Olin Wright. Mine challenges the assumption that the Left is anti-market, and the associated assumption that neoliberalism is pro-market (an argument that is also well made in Colin Crouch's new book), and demands instead that we focus upon hierachies within capitalism.
I learnt from the ippr's roundtable commemoration of Marxism Today that the secret of its success lay in relentless, unsparing editorial intervention by its editor Martin Jacques (afflicting every author great and small except Bea Campbell, so it was said). By that standard, great things can be expected from The Point!
