Crisis of Capitalism, The Critique

Video produced by Lee Doren of How the World Works .

This is a Fair Use Critique of RSA animate - radical sociologist David Harvey, where he asks if it is time to look beyond capitalism towards a new social order that would allow us to live within a system that really could be responsible, just, and humane!?

Harvey supposedly gave a lecture at the RSA (www.theRSA.org).

His entire argument can be debunked simply by looking at the Census data regarding income.
