The Enigma of Capital


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor David Harvey
Chair: Professor Michael Storper

Recorded on 26 April 2010 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

For three centuries the capitalist system has shaped western society and conditioned the lives of its people. Capitalism is cyclical - and increasingly bankrupt. Boom-and-bust is its model. Laying bare the follies of the international financial system, eminent academic David Harvey looks at the nature of capitalism and why it's time to call a halt to its unbridled excesses.
