The Archbishop of Canterbury’s swipe at financial markets has attracted a lot of attention. But a much more consistent anticapitalist will be speaking in London next week.
David Harvey’s lectures on Marx’s Capital have attracted a huge online audience. Harvey teaches at the City University of New York, but he doesn’t confine himself to theoretical criticism. In a recent blog he championed the Occupy movement as the “nemesis” of the “Party of Wall Street” that dominates US politics as well as the economy.
On Friday 11 November Harvey is delivering the annual Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Lecture in central London. His book The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism won the 2010 Deutscher Prize. The winner of this year’s prize will be announced at the lecture, which is part of the conference organised by the journal Historical Materialism.
This is a rare chance to hear one of the world’s leading Marxist thinkers.
