ACCUMULATION BY DISPOSESSION OR ACCUMULATION WITHOUT DISPOSESSION - Dr. Ritika Shrimali
Wednesday, March 1st, 5pm - MW396 (IDS Resource Room)
Dr. Shrimali is a Research Fellow at the York Center for Asian Research York University.
"According to David Harvey, Accumulation by Dispossession (ABD) has become the dominant form of accumulation under the mantra of neoliberalism backed by the State policies, whether in developed or in developing economies. In this talk, using empirical evidence on contract farming in India, I argue that capitalist accumulation can indeed occur without dispossession."
