Brilliant -- David Harvey, The Crises of Capitalism Animation
It's really, really hard for many supposed "progressives" to understand this Endless Recession and to contemplate the kind of economic restructuring that is necessary to... end it instead of perpetuating it.
The United States has pretty much turned into Japan economically, only with far more wealth flowing far faster away from wages, production and services and to the financial sector, where, for now anyway, it just sits.
No one who has any influence wants to stand in the way.
Certainly not Our Rulers. Heaven forfend.
Harvey can explain it, but he doesn't know what to do about it. Well, I think he does. He just doesn't want to say so.
