Accumulation by Dispossession

I would like to share the following clip from David Harvey's final lecture in his Reading Marx's Capital series which can be watched here for free! It is an open course consisting of a close reading of the text of Karl Marx's Capital Volume I in 13 video lectures by Professor David Harvey. He reformulates Karl Marx' argument of accumulation by dispossession or primitive accumulation ("ursprüngliche Akkumulation") as the historic basis needed for the creation of capitalism into the idea of accumulation by dispossession as an ongoing process and connects it to today's developments in times of the financial crises. He sees the struggles against this form of accumulation in the centre of any oppositional force against capitalism today. Enjoy!
