The introductory lecture of David Harvey’s online course Reading Marx’s Capital was nothing short of excellent.  It was a clear exposition of how you must approach Capital if you want to read it seriously.  Here is the second class as promised.  This lecture covers Chapters One: The Commodity and Chapter Two: The Process of Exchange.  For those wondering which edition of Capital Harvey is using, they are the Vintage and Penguin Classic editions.

Also, since nothing is free in the world of capital, Harvey is asking for donations to keep the course online.
