Capitalist Crisis

DAVID McNALLY SPEAKS ON THE GLOBAL SLUMP: THE ECONOMICS AND POLITICS OF CRISIS AND RESISTANCE

David McNally, author of Global Slump: The Economics and Politics of Crisis and Resistance analyzes the global financial meltdown as a systemic crisis. He argues that – far from having ended – the crisis has ushered in a whole period of worldwide economic and political turbulence.

Analyzing the massive intervention of the world’s central banks to stave off a Great Depression, he shows that, while averting a complete meltdown, this laid the basis for recurring crises for poor and working class people: job loss, increased poverty and inequality, and deep cuts to social programs, as well as the intensification of racism and attacks on migrant workers.

Only real resistance to corporate power and corporate policies can change this. David traces new patterns of social and political resistance – from housing activism and education struggles, to mass strikes and protests.

You can listen to David McNally speak about these issues at ‘Equal Time Radio’: http://equaltimeradio.com/?q=node/312

1) John Weeks Recording:

Around 70-80 people came to King’s last Monday evening for John Weeks’ very interesting talk on ‘Capital, Exploitation and Economic Crises’. For those who weren’t able to come, there is a recording of the talk
here: http://rapidshare.com/files/424492618/JohnWeeks_11Oct2010.mp3

A copy of John’s PowerPoint presentation will also be available soon on http://kclreadingcapital.blogspot.com

2) Volume II of Capital:

The Reading Group continues this year with Volume II of Marx’s Capital. Although, as Engels pointed out, Volume II does not contain ‘much material for agitation’, in describing the process by which the total social capital is reproduced and circulated, it occupies a crucial place in Marx’s analysis of the capitalist mode of production. Volume II, centred around the market-place, explains not how value and surplus-value are produced, but how they are realised.

For our first session, Nicholas Beech, a PhD student from UCL, will be presenting a short introduction followed by a discussion on Ernest Mandel’s Introduction to the Penguin edition of Volume II.

Monday 25th October

6pm
Strand Building, Room tbc
King’s College London

N.B. We will be reading the Introduction to Vol.II by Ernest Mandel for this meeting.
