David Harvey on capital, theory, and becoming a Marxist – video interview with Sebastian Budgen

For fifty years David Harvey has written and lectured on Capital, becoming one of the world’s foremost Marx scholars. In addition, his work on the history and geography of capitalist development has transformed our understanding of neoliberalism and the spread of inequalities across the globe.

In this interview David Harvey recalls the formation of his Marxist ideas, intellectual influences, and writing. He also talks about the growth of the populist right and how that is connected to geographical electoral splits, Marx’s Grundrisse (which he has written a companion to – see below), and Marx’s theories more broadly.

David Harvey teaches at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and is the author of many books, including:
