Lurching

David Harvey’s Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism continues his series of books on capitalism, a series now more intensely focused due to the global financial crisis of recent years, a crisis which, of course, has not, unfortunately, prompted much in the way of remedies for the inequalities and instabilities of the global capitalist system. 257 more words

I don’t agree with everything said here (The Wire cynical? I don’t think so), but it’s worth listening to. Both of these authors are worth reading as well. 575 more words

Review

DAVID HARVEY ~ 3 PER CENT COMPOUND GROWTH ~ THE ENIGMA OF CAPITAL ~ AND THE CRISIS OF CAPITALISM

~ There has been a tendency within the history of crisis theorising to look for one dominant explanation for the crisis-prone character of capitalism – the three big traditional camps of thought are the profit squeeze (profits fall because real wages rise), the falling rate of profit (labour-saving technological changes backfire and ‘ruinous’ competition pulls prices down), the underconsumptionist traditions (lack of effective demand and the tendency towards stagnation associated with excessive monopolisation) 275 more words

DAVID HARVEY ~ POLITICS OF DENIAL ~ THE ENIGMA OF CAPITAL ~ AND THE CRISIS OF CAPITALISM

~ When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II asked the economists at the London School of Economics in November 2008 how come they had not seen the current crisis coming (a question which was surely on everyone’s lips but which only a feudal monarch could so simply pose and expect some answer), the economists had no ready response – assembled together under the aegis of the British Academy, they could only confess in a collective letter to Her Majesty, after six months of study, rumination and deep consultation with key policy makers, that they had somehow lost sight of what they called ‘systemic risks’, that they, like everyone else, had been lost in a ‘politics of denial’ – but what was it that they were denying? 1,159 more words
