<New phases have come to light influencing the way of accumulations in capitalism : the unification of market and production, explosive growth in information and communication technology, the emergence of new economy, and financialized economy.>

I used colon for making examples for 'new phases'. So 'New phases = the unification of market and production ~~~~ and financilaized economy'

Can I use colon for this usage?

and If I can't use it, what would be the best way for expressing this in a simple way?

I think you have a problem of presentation logic and I'd suggest somelike like that:

The way accumulations proceed in capitalism is related to various factors/causes, some of which have only recently been identified:

The manner in which accumulations proceed in capitalism is related to various factors, some of which have only recently been identified:
Hi Ahn,

Your use of the colon is okay, but the part that leads into it is hard to understand: New phases have come to light influencing the way of accumulations in capitalism

Are you saying that these phrases are what has the influence, or that they have been influenced by, created in response to, or reflect?

And I'm afraid I don't understand your meaning with "the way of accumulations in capitalism." Can you try to say it another way?

Hi, Grammaer Geek.

The 'new phases' are the subject 'influencing the way of accumulation in capitalism'.

and this is the sentence that I translated korean sentence into english. so i don't know exactily what is the 'accumulations in capitalism'.

maybe the meaning of 'accumulations in capitalism' will be revealed in the next paragraph. It's just a part of the introduction for the neo-liberalism.

but i think the accumulations mean 'the accumulations of capital in Capitalism'.

<New phases have come to light influencing the way of accumulations in capitalism : the unification of market and production, explosive growth in information and communication technology, the emergence of new economy, and financialized economy.>

Thank you for your advice, Marius Hancu.

I'll clear the meaning of this sentence below.

1. New phases have appeared.

2. And they(new phases) are influencing the way of accumulations in capitalism.

3. And the examples of 'New phases' are 'the unification of market and production, explosive growth in information and communication technology, the emergence of new economy, and financialized economy'.

I"ll take your advice.

I don't think those are phases.
They are probably phenomena or factors.

Ok, I didn't know the exact usage of phase.

Phenomena will be nice.
Okay - factors! That makes a lot more sense than phrases.

New factors have come to light that influence the way capital is accumulated: the unification of market and production, explosive growth in information and communication technology, the emergence of new economy, and a financialized economy.>

I've never seen the word "financailzed" before - it sounds very jargon-y.
Thanks for all your help. Emotion: big smile

Yes, the word 'financialized' is weird to me too. I couldn't find any other words for it. Emotion: sad

oh, I just found the word 'financialization' in wikipedia.

Financialisation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation , search

"the increasing dominance of the finance industry in the sum total of economic activity, of financial controllers in the management of corporations, of financial assets among total assets, of marketised securities and particularly equities among financial assets, of the stock market as a market for corporate control in determining corporate strategies, and of fluctuations in the stock market as a determinant of business cycles" (Dore 2002)

then,how about 'financialization of economy' instead of 'financialized economy' ??
