The 17 Contradictions of Capitalism


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor David Harvey
Chair: Dr Murray Low

Recorded on 2 April 2014 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

You thought capitalism was permanent? Think again. Leading Marxist thinker Professor David Harvey unravels the contradictions at the heart of capitalism – its drive, for example, to accumulate capital beyond the means of investing it.

David Harvey (@profdavidharvey) is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Geography at the Graduate Centre of the City University of New York. This event marks the publication of Professor Harvey’s new book, Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism.

Murray Low is associate professor of human geography in the Department of Geography & Environment at LSE.
