A social history of our economic downfall with David Harvey


David Harvey is a Marxist geographer and thinker whose scholarship has included the history of neoliberalism, the meaning of Marx’s Das Kapital, and building a participatory democratic system in urban centers.

Here Harvey lays out the history of neoliberalism and the political system it entails. While many libertarian-capitalists embrace the ideas of neoliberalism under the auspices of pleas for freedom, it becomes abundantly clear listening to Harvey that the regimes of Pinochet and Deng have been anything but liberation. This is essential for anyone interested in knowing why America’s economy is so sluggish.
