C.P. Chandrasekhar speaks on 'Capital
and the Critique of Bourgeois Political Economy'
Safdar Hashmi Memorial Trust (SAHMAT) is organising a
series of four lectures by eminent economsit Prof. C.P.
Chandrasekhar to commemorate 150 years of the publication
of Volume I of Karl Marx's seminal work, Capital.
The first lecture, titled 'Capital and the critique of
bourgeois political economy', was delivered on 9 September
2017 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi. In this
lecture, Professor Chandrasekhar talks about Marx's analysis
of capitalism as an inevitably transient mode of production
in a constant opposition to political economists of that
period, and his contributions to the Labour Theory of
Value. He also discusses how Marx's analysis does not
fully examine the role of the state and the periphery
as sites for primitive accumulation thus overestimating
the transformative potential of capitalism.
