This manuscript investigates how far has the post-crisis global economy navigated towards a new phase of capitalism. This question is underpinned by a conjecture: capitalism, as a dynamic and flexible economic system, has in their crises a key element for its long-term dynamics. The manuscript is organized in five sections. The first surveys the literature on the role of crises in metamorphoses of capitalism. The second section surveys the structural changes before the crises, the third section summarizes the rescue operation and movements in the epicentre of the crisis, and the fourth section asks whether or not structural reforms of capitalism are in the political agenda. The fifth section evaluates the stage of current transition towards a new phase of global capitalism.
