How should we understand the capitalist system in light of the interconnected crises we are witnessing? What will the coming economic crisis look like? And how will the system respond? As well as violence and disaster, David Harvey sees the possibility of new forms of resistance emerging in the present moment. In this lecture, he will discuss the themes of his latest book “The Anti-Capitalist Chronicles”, exploring the economic, political and social dimensions of the crisis – and how to build an alternative.
