Post-Fordism is a term used to summarise the discussions around changes associated with the crises of capitalism experienced in industrial societies. It is seen to emerge as a response to the conditions of 1970s, where Fordism as a means of production and regime of accumulation became unstable. Post-Fordism did not replace Fordism, but simply represented an alternative framework for approaching systems of capitalist accumulation. As has been pointed out by Andrew Sayer and Richard Walker there was not a moment where Fordism ended and post-Fordism began but rather that the Fordist systems became challenged, and this led to the emergence of different logics of production and accumulation.
