David Harvey's book is the best synthesis of Marx's contributions to political economy I've read one that goes beyond Capital itself to incorporate insights from Marx's other works such as the Grundrisse and Theories of Surplus Value I turned to this work just after reading vol 1 2 of Capital with the aid of Harvey's video lecture series; I'm so glad because I think it helped further consolidate my understanding of Marx's thought While this is a tougher read than his The Enigma of Capital Harvey's analysis of the economic crisis of 2007 2008 I think this book is definitely the best kind of introductory overview you could give to an intellectual person of Marxian thought provided you have just a little background in reading philosophy political theory andor critical social theoryBut Harvey goes beyond that to provide a critiue of some of the weaker aspects of Marx's thought such as the crisis theory based upon the law of the falling rate of profit and he even fleshes out some areas where Marx made some interesting beginning insights but left us without a completely coherent theory In this vein Harvey’s development of the concept of finance capital is an important exploration of significance of fictitious capital and makes an important contribution to understanding current state of the global economy; considering this book was originally written in the early 80s this section is astounding in its prescience in the light of recent history and the trauma brought to working people by the casino economy of finance capitalismBut given Harvey's area of expertise as a geographer it is not surprising that his most intriguing insights are into the effects of time and space in the flow of capital and uneven geographic development; in the process he actually strengthens and extends Marxist thinking about the problems of colonialism and imperialism In short Harvey's work actually makes valuable contributions to Marxist and radical thought making it must reading for all leftists and progressive activists of any stripe

N of the turmoil in world markets todayIn his analyses of ‘fictitious capital’ and ‘uneven geographical development’ Harvey takes the reader step by step through layers of crisis formation begin. This was written the 1970s at the end of the Keynesian era Western countries still had a social democratic element to their economies then So Marxism was not a fashionable outlook at this time But reading about a Marxian analysis of the economy looks much prescient in the neoliberal era in 2019 The crises he talked about with accumulation and concentration of wealth and immiseration of everyone else seems to be coming to pass in our news cycles politics and daily lives I don't think anyone who is honest believes that this will usher in fully automated luxury communism but it will make the current order and untenable The problem is that people can envision the end of the world easily than the end of capitalismDavid Harvey in a recent interviewhttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvutmWY
