David Harvey has taught Capital to huge numbers of people everywhere. Dan interviews him about his latest book, Marx, Capital and the Madness of Economic Reason. Harvey explains why he thinks all three volumes are of Capital are key, why we’re still living under neoliberalism at least unless and until ethnonationalist autarchy pushes it aside, how capitalism might survive climate change via mass immiseration, and linking struggles over production and consumption in the fight to transform society toward socialism. And more.
This week on Jacobin Radio, Suzi Weissman discusses the relevance of Marx for our present moment with anthropologist and Marxist geographer David Harvey. Harvey’s newest book, Marx, Capital and the Madness of Economic Reason, explicates the core of Marx’s thinking in the three volumes of Capital, and in less than 200 pages, Harvey develops those ideas so we all can use them to grasp what’s going on in the capitalist economy today.
