Where Do We Go From Here? Given the massive historical inertia at work here, and the ever-expanding power and worldwide spread of capitalist production, is there any obvious way out of the CEC?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
