Die Arbeiten des zweiten Teiles wenden sich – zentriert um Begriffe wie „Exklusion“, „Prekarität“ oder „neue Armut“ – den neuen Ungleichheiten und Konfliktlinien im „postfordistisch“ transformierten Kapitalismus zu. Im Mittelpunkt der Beiträge des dritten Teiles steht die Frage nach praktisch-politischen Widerstandspotenzialen und Gegenentwürfen gegen die schrankenlose Durchkapitalisierung der Welt.
