Not the most engaging response to the crisis
on 19 October 2016
Bought this looking for a Marxist response to the financial crisis. However, found it hard going. Reads like this was a rushed job, pushed out at the insistence of the publisher to cash in on that post-crash market. (They needn't have rushed - the crisis world is still with us!)
By all accounts Harvey has written better books. For my purposes, I found "Debt: the first 5000 years" by the anarchist David Graeber to be much more readable and thought-provoking.
