crises of capitalism (David Harvey)

This talk contrasts five different mainstream theories of the economic crisis with David Harvey's Marxist analysis. He build the talk around the rhetorical device of a question which the Queen asked the London School of Economics: How come you guys didn't see the crisis coming?

The very entertaining RSA ( (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) artistic animation enhances the presentation considerably.

I looked at this after I'd started reading his Enigma of Capital. The RSA animations are incredibly helpful in providing a simple viualisation of his approach to blockages in the circuits of capital and the nature of the crisis.

Hope you're keeping well Bill!
