Alternative Capitalisms and Alternatives to Capitalism 1

Underlying the global economic and ecological crises is a global network of economic and political power relations which are rooted in the institutional bases of colonial era and then reconstructed themselves through new discourses and ideologies during the post-colonial & post cold war era. What these sources of power have always claimed is that there is no viable alternative to the current world order or world system.
What do the facts tell us about the differences between different types of capitalism (alternative capitalisms and their capacity to overcome the current crises)? Hosseini presents simple graphs, comparing historical stages of capitalist globalization and various national capitalist systems, which clearly show there is not a significant difference between these systems when it comes to provide us with liable solutions to our global crises.
