A bimonthly podcast hosted by Professor David Harvey that looks at capitalism through a Marxist lens.
Season 3, Episode 13 — The Legitimation Crisis of the Late 1960s
In this episode of ACC, Prof. Harvey takes us through the political agitations that occurred in the US in the 1960s. The various social movements — the Civil Rights movement, the student movement, the labor movement, the women’s movement and the anti-war movement — challenged capitalism and corporate power and questioned the legitimacy of the government. The anti-capitalist and anti-corporate sentiments that emerged prompted a counter-attack by the big monopoly companies who saw their power and wealth eroding.
