«Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism»: David Harvey

CASojidWEAAMGTnAuthor-meets-critics session at the 2015 Association of American Geographers meeting

Description: In his newest book—Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism (Oxford, 2014)—David Harvey sets out to understand not the contradictions of capitalism, but those of capitalism’s economic engine—capital. He wants to uncover how and why capital works the way it does, «and why it might stutter and stall and sometimes appear to be on the verge of collapse. [He] also want[s] to show why this economic engine should be replaced, and with what» (p. 11). This author-meets-critics panel brings Harvey into conversation with several important figures in contemporary Marxist geography to discuss this book in particular, and Harvey’s significant contribution to radical geography more generally. Remarks from this panel will subsequently appear as a Review Symposium in the journal Human Geography.

Speakers (in order of appearance): Johnny Finn, Richard Peet, Ipsita Chatterjee, Elaine Hartwick, Erik Swyngedouw, Susan Roberts, Don Mitchell, and David Harvey.
