    theory that focused on the cultural diversity of cities Complexity difference and dynamics were the watch words of the day and any theorist that was seen as a reductionist or a positivist or whose theories were concerned with fixed structures was to be rejected as a sociological dinosaur Marx with his dialectics and modes of production was one such dinosaur However reading Harvey and then sitting down and reading Marx s Capital alongside his lecture series made me realise that our generation of students had been spoon fed a very one sided story of the development of social thought one that centered around the slaying of monsters like Marx Durkheim and Weber by postmodern heroes like Baudrillard Lyotard and Derrida Harvey s great achievement is to convince our generation not to take the stereotype of Marx s theory at face value but to go back to the text and discover to our surprise and delight nuance complexity dynamics motion paradox and contradiction In short everything we were told we could not find in the old theories And suddenly Marx s theories are alive again Steve Lytton Having opted out of the UK political scene some 5 years ago through a mixture of disillusion and a profound sense of pessimism regarding the chances of progressive change without a major economic and social collapse I am now living in a backwater of rural France Nevertheless old habits die hard Stumbling upon David Harvey s RSAnimate The Crises of Capitalism and in watching his clear sighted and closely argued presentation I was amazed that I hadn t heard about him before What have I been doing and where have I been that these revelatory presentations have passed me by There can be no doubt that the seeds of a new social formation have been sown in the heart of the capitalist system by the system itself and how much more of a perfect illustration of this that Youtube can present these ideas to the world at large shining a light and indicating some kind of way forward David Harvey s contributions are inspiring and demand to be shared I will seek to share David s analysis with others How good it feels to be once again an active participant in the spread of the kind of message that might just ensure that the natural balance that so many of us desire has a greater chance of seeing the light of day For having provided that opportunity David I thank you and take my hat off to you Geoff Taylor David Harvey has made a Marxist critique of contemporary capitalism accessible to the common public He resists esoteric and obscure tendencies expected of other academics his recent 21st century didactic works are not only clearly and easily read but are also well articulated and well organized for the neophytes of Harvey s critical style For those who must reach the luminous summits of knowledge David Harvey s still monumental tome The Limits to Capital

  • Why the U.S. Stimulus Package is Bound To Fail - Reading Marx's Capital with David Harvey
    took so long to do so and that it was the Second rather than the First World War that led it finally to take up the role leaving the inter war years as years of multipolarity and chaotic competing imperial ambitions of the sort that the NCIS report fears will be the situation in 2025 The tectonic shifts now under way are deeply influenced however by the radical geographical unevenness in the economic and political possibilities of responding to the current crisis Let me illustrate how this unevenness is now working by way of a tangible example As the depression that began in 2007 deepened the argument was made by many that a full fledged Keynesian solution was required to extract global capitalism from the mess it was in To this end various stimulus packages and bank stabilization measures were proposed and to some degree taken up in different countries in different ways in the hope that these would resolve the difficulties The variety of solutions on offer varied immensely depending upon the economic circumstances and the prevailing forms of political opinion pitting for example Germany against Britain and France in the European Union Consider however the different economic political possibilities in the United States and China and the potential consequences for both shifting hegemony and for the manner in which the crisis might be resolved In the United States any attempt to find an adequate Keynesian solution has been doomed at the start by a number of economic and political barriers that are almost impossible to overcome A Keynesian solution would require massive and prolonged deficit financing if it were to succeed It has been correctly argued that Roosevelt s attempt to return to a balanced budget in 1937 8 plunged the United States back into depression and that it was therefore World War II that saved the situation and not Roosevelt s too timid approach to deficit financing in the New Deal So even if the institutional reforms as well as the push towards a more egalitarian policy did lay the foundations for the Post World War II recovery the New Deal in itself actually failed to resolve the crisis in the United States The problem for the United States in 2008 9 is that it starts from a position of chronic indebtedness to the rest of the world it has been borrowing at the rate of more than 2 billion a day over the last ten years or more and this poses an economic limitation upon the size of the extra deficit that can now be incurred This was not a serious problem for Roosevelt who began with a roughly balanced budget There is also a geo political limitation since the funding of any extra deficit is contingent upon the willingness of other powers principally from East Asia and the Gulf States to lend On both counts the economic stimulus available to the United States will almost certainly be neither large enough nor sustained enough to be up to the task of reflating the economy This problem is exacerbated by ideological reluctance on the part of both political parties to embrace the huge amounts of deficit spending that will be required ironically in part because the previous Republican administration worked on Dick Cheney s principle that Reagan taught us that deficits don t matter As Paul Krugman the leading public advocate for a Keynesian solution for one has argued the 800 billion reluctantly voted on by Congress in 2009 while better than nothing is nowhere near enough It may take something of the order to 2 trillion to do the job and that is indeed excessive debt relative to where the US deficit now stands The only possible economic option would be to replace the weak Keynesianism of excessive military expenditures by the much stronger Keynesianism of social programs Cutting the US defense budget in half bringing it more in line with that of Europe in relation to proportion of GDP might technically help but it would be of course political suicide given the posture of the Republican Party as well as many Democrats for anyone who proposed it The second barrier is more purely political In order to work the stimulus has to be administered in such a way as to guarantee that it will be spent on goods and services and so get the economy humming again This means that any relief must be directed to those who will spend it which means the lower classes since even the middle classes if they spend it at all are more likely to spend it on bidding up asset values buying up foreclosed houses for example rather than increasing their purchases of goods and services In any case when times are bad many people will tend to use any extra income they receive to retire debt or to save as largely happened with the 600 rebate designed by the Bush Administration in the early summer of 2008 What appears prudent and rational from the standpoint of the household bodes ill for the economy at large in much the same way that the banks have rationally taken public money and either hoarded it or used it to buy assets rather than to lend The prevailing hostility in the United States to spreading the wealth around and to administering any sort of relief other than tax cuts to individuals arises out of hard core neoliberal ideological doctrine centered in but by no means confined to the Republican Party that households know best These doctrines have broadly been accepted as gospel by the American public at large after more than thirty years of neoliberal political indoctrination We are as I have argued elsewhere all neoliberals now for the most part without even knowing it There is a tacit acceptance for example that wage repression a key component to the present problem is a normal state of affairs in the United States One of the three legs of a Keynesian solution
