Tonight (Thursday, April 16th) at 6:30 PM Professor Harvey will be giving a lecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design titled, “The Urban Roots of the Fiscal Crisis.” His lecture will be addressing the questions:

How many fiscal disruptions over the last thirty years have been urban/property led? Why does this particular one takes the form it does? In what ways does this fits into a Marxist theory of urbanization under capitalism?

The lecture will be webcast live at this link at 6:30 PM (Eastern):
