Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism

Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism

by David Harvey
Publication Date: 22/04/2015
RRP  $22.99 $21.50
You thought capitalism was permanent? Think again.David Harvey unravels the contradictions at the heart of capitalism-its drive, for example, to accumulate capital beyond the means of investing it, it's imperative to use the cheapest methods of production that leads to consumers with no means of consumption, and its compulsion to exploit nature to the point of extinction. These are the tensions which underpin the persistence of mass unemployment, the downward spirals of Europe and Japan, and the unstable lurches forward of China and India.Not that the contradictions of capital are all bad: they can lead to the innovations that make capitalism resilient and, it seems, permanent. Yet appearances can deceive: while many of capital's contradictions can be managed, others will be fatal to our society. This new book is both an incisive guide to the world around us and a manifesto for change.

Emeritus Professor David Harvey After qualifying as an accountant in the United Kingdom, David began lecturing in 1971 at Portsmouth Polytechnic (now Portsmouth University) with a subsequent move to Plymouth Polytechnic (now the University of Plymouth) in 1977.

During his time in the United Kingdom he developed a keen interest in curriculum development and teaching methods and was involved with the writing of several books with an open learning style, many of these in collaboration with Peter Atrill and Eddie McLaney. During this time he also completed a Masters degree in Managerial Financial Controls and a PhD in the areas of investment and financing decisions.

This research work covered both traditional investment appraisal and corporate strategy. In 1991 he moved to Australia to take up the position of Professor of Accounting and Head of the Centre for Accounting and Finance at the University of New England (Northern Rivers), which subsequently became Southern Cross University.

In 1992 he became the Dean of the Faculty of Business and Computing, a position he held until 1996, before reverting to his Professorship. In 2000 he took up the position of the Dean of the Faculty of Commerce at the University of Southern Queensland. In 2001 the Faculty of Commerce was merged with the Faculty of Business and David became Dean of the enlarged Faculty of Business.

David has had extensive experience in developing and teaching programs internationally. His most recent position was as Pro Vice-Chancellor (International Quality), a position he held from 2004 until his retirement in 2005.
