The clip accompanies a speech by David Harvey on the crises of capitalism with nice and detailed drawings. Harvey illustrates the five most common narratives on why the financial and economic crisis took place – from human frailty to policy failure. Departing from those narratives, he presents a Marxist analysis on the current crisis, as a consequence of the crisis of the 1970s and of recent developments of capitalism.
