History[ edit ] In Marx's thought[ edit ] Although the modern term "creative destruction" is not used explicitly by Marx, it is largely derived from his analyses, particularly in the work of Werner Sombart whom Engels described as the only German professor who understood Marx's Capital and of Joseph Schumpeter, who discussed at length the origin of the idea in Marx's work see below.
In The Communist Manifesto ofKarl Marx and Friedrich Engels described the crisis tendencies of capitalism in terms of "the enforced destruction of a mass of productive forces": Modern bourgeois society, with its relations of production, of exchange and of property, a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange, is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by his spells.
In these crises, a great part not only of existing production, but also of previously created productive forces, are periodically destroyed. In these crises, there breaks out an epidemic that, in all earlier epochs, would have seemed an absurdity — the epidemic of over-production.
Society suddenly finds itself put back into a state of momentary barbarism; it appears as if a famine, a universal war of devastation, had cut off the supply of every means of subsistence; industry and commerce seem to be destroyed; and why?
Because there is too much civilisation, too much means of subsistence, too much industry, too much commerce.
The productive forces at the disposal of society no longer tend to further the development of the conditions of bourgeois property; on the contrary, they have become too powerful for these conditions. On the one hand by enforced destruction of a mass of productive forces; on the other, by the conquest of new markets, and by the more thorough exploitation of the old ones.
That is to say, by paving the way for more extensive and more destructive crises, and by diminishing the means whereby crises are prevented.
These contradictions lead to explosions, cataclysms, crises, in which [ This is the ruinous effect of the fall in the prices of commodities. It does not cause the destruction of any use-values. What one loses, the other gains.
Values used as capital are prevented from acting again as capital in the hands of the same person. The old capitalists go bankrupt. This is also the period during which moneyed interest enriches itself at the cost of industrial interest. While Marx clearly admired capitalism's creativity he [ The Schumpeterians have all along gloried in capitalism's endless creativity while treating the destructiveness as mostly a matter of the normal costs of doing business".
In this case creation was the consequence, rather than the cause, of destruction. In German economic discourse it was taken up from Marx's writings by Werner Sombartparticularly in his text Krieg und Kapitalismus: Hugo Reinert has argued that Sombart's formulation of the concept was influenced by Eastern mysticismspecifically the image of the Hindu god Shivawho is presented in the paradoxical aspect of simultaneous destroyer and creator.
Nietzsche represented the creative destruction of modernity through the mythical figure of Dionysusa figure whom he saw as at one and the same time "destructively creative" and "creatively destructive".Subpart —Contracts with Commercial Organizations General.
