David Harvey on Marx

90 minuten

VIDEO-ON-DEMAND  coming up at De Balie TV and at De Balie Vimeo. The biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression has generated a surge of interest in Marx’s work in the effort to understand the origins of our current crisis. For nearly forty years, David Harvey has written and lectured on Karl Marx Capital, becoming one of the world’s foremost Marx scholars.
This evening David Harvey will explain why a fundamental revision of the dominant Marx interpretation is necessary and what makes Capital a book that changed the course of history and, as Harvey suggests, may do so again. According to Harvey we should better read Marx instead of Piketty as he writes:
  “There is much that is valuable in Piketty’s data sets. But his explanation as to why the inequalities and oligarchic tendencies arise is seriously flawed. His proposals as to the remedies for the inequalities are naïve if not utopian. And he has certainly not produced a working model for capital of the twenty-first century. For that we still need Marx or his modern-day equivalent.” About David Harvey:
