The Crises of Capitalism: A Marxist perspective from David Harvey

In Social Justice and the City David Harvey argues that capitalism annihilates geographic, political, and social space to ensure its own reproduction.

In The New Imperialism he argues that the war in Iraq allowed the neo-conservatives to divert attention from the failures of capitalism in the U.S.

I’m not a Marxist, but I don’t want to live in a world where hedge fund managers make $3 billion a year.

What do the hedgies actually do for society, anyway?

Not a damn thing.
