David Harvey: Crises of capitalism

June 26th, 2011

In this RSA Animate, Professor David Harvey examines the causes of the global financial crisis and suggests it is time to look beyond capitalism towards a new social order that would allow us to live in a system that is responsible, just, and humane. Whilst I do not subscribe to Professor Harvey’s underlying Marxist conclusions or agree with all the views he expresses, the video is well worth watching. It is based on a lecture that Harvey, distinguished professor at the City University of New York (CUNY), director of the Center for Place, Culture and Politics and author of many books including The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism, gave at the RSA in April 2010. Harvey has been teaching Karl Marx’s Das Kapital for nearly 40 years.
