Theories of a "new imperialism" assume that world capitalism in the 21st century is still made up of "domestic capitals" and that distinct national economies and world political dynamics are driven by US e orts to o set the decline in hegemony amidst heightened inter-imperialist rivalry. These theories ignore empirical evidence on the transnationalization of capital and the increasingly salient role of transnational state apparatuses in imposing capitalist domination beyond the logic of the inter-state system. I argue here that US interventionism is not a departure from capitalist globalization but a response to its crisis. The class relations of global capitalism are now so deeply internalized within every nation-state that the classical image of imperialism as a relation of external domination is outdated. The end of the extensive enlargement of capitalism is the end of the imperialist era of world capitalism. The implacable logic of global accumulation is now largely internal to the complex of fractious political institutions through which ruling groups attempt to manage those relations. We need a theory of capitalist expansion – of the political processes and the institutions through which such expansion takes place, the class relations and spatial dynamics it involves. Les théories d'un 'nouvel impérialisme' supposent que le capitalisme mondial au 21ème siècle se compose toujours des capitaux domestiques et des économies nationaux distinctes. Ils supposent aussi que la dynamique politique mondiale est mené par l'e ort américain pour reconstituer sa proper hégémonie dans la rivalité intensi ée interimpérialiste. Ces théories ignorant l'évidence empirique sur la mondialisation du capital et le rôle de plus en plus saillant des appareillages transnationaux d'état d'imposer la domination capitaliste au-delà de la logique du système transnational. Je constate du fait ici que l'interventionnisme des Etats-Unis n'est pas un départ de la mondialisation capitaliste mais, contrairement, elle est une réponse à sa crise. Les relations de classe du capitalisme mondial sont maintenant si profondément internalisées dans chaque Ètat-nation que l'image classique de l'impérialisme comme relation de la domination externe est démodée. La n de l'agrandissement étendu du capitalisme est la n de l'ère impérialiste du capitalisme du monde. La logique implacable de l'accumulation globale est maintenant en grande partie interne au complexe des corps politiques grincheux par lesquels les groupes puissants essaient de contrôler ces relations. Nous avons besoin d'une théorie d'expansion capitaliste – des processus politiques et des institutions par lesquels une telle expansion a lieu, des relations de classe et de la dynamique spatiale qu'elle implique. Las teorías del nuevo imperialismo asumen que el capitalismo mundial del siglo 21 se compone aún de "capitales nacionales" y economías nacionales distintas y que la dinámica política inter nacional están dirigidas por el esfuerzo de US para contrarrestar su declive hegemónico como consecuencia de la rivalidad internacional. Estas teorías ignoran la evidencia empírica acerca de la transnaciona lización del capital y el papel crecientemente preponderante de los mecanismos del Estado transnacional para imponer una dominación capitalista más allá de la lógica del sistema Interestatal. Aquí argumento que el intervencionismo americano no es una desviación de la globalización capitalista sino una respuesta a su crisis. Las relaciones de clase del capitalismo global están hoy tan profundamente internalizadas dentro de cada Estado nación que la imagen clásica del imperialismo como una relación de dominación externa está pasada de moda. El n de la ampliación extensiva del capita lismo es el n de la era imperialista del capitalismo mundial. La lógica implacable de la acumulación global es ahora principalmente
