OLIVEIRA, Dennis de. Direct capital action: the power of contemporary capitalism. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.33, pp. 405-421. ISSN 1519-549X.

This artcile proposes the concept of "direct action of capital" as a definition of the new configuration of power in contemporary capitalism. This new configuration is the result of political and ideological legacies of the Cold War, the wealth accumulation of capitalism in the era of flexible production and reconfiguration of the capitalist state model. The direct action of capital focuses on tripod monopoly of weapons, money and voice to society and imposes an experience of living centered hegemony of consumerism.

Keywords : Flexible Capitalism and Politics; Power and Capitalism; State and Contemporary Capitalism.
