The End of Capitalism? – David Harvey (Penn Humanities Forum, 30 Nov 2011)


David Harvey, Professor of Geography and Anthropology Graduate Center, City University of New York. Three years after the near collapse of global financial markets, America is still struggling with unemployment, debt, and foreclosure, European governments are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy—and the world’s billionaires are getting richer faster than ever before. The current situation is not sustainable. But what changes need to be made to overcome this mounting crisis of our world economic system? How radical an adaptation will be required?
