If empires are created because of over-saving and under-consumption, if they represented the final stage of capitalism, how did one explain the empires of antiquity? Joseph Schumpeter , whose Zur Soziologie des Imperialismus (Imperialism and Social Classes ) appeared in Germany in 1919, was closer to the truth when he argued that modern imperialism was ‘atavistic’. Capitalism, he pointed out, usually flourished on peace and free-trade, rather than war and protectionism.
