David Harvey on the Financial Crisis

. Wednesday, June 30, 2010

David Harvey, Professor of Anthropology at the City University of New York, has been on a tour promoting his work -- from a Marxist perspective -- on how the Great Decession reveals the necessity for moving to an anti-capitalist system. I don't agree, but this animated video of one of his lectures is wonderfully entertaining. And I think he's right about one thing: there are a bunch of competing market-oriented narratives about how and why the crisis occurred, and none of them are especially convincing. That doesn't mean the more radical take is correct, but it is worth remembering.
