Subject:   [september17discuss] Economy Forum on OWS Sep17



we are organizing an open Economy Forum during the New York Fun

Exchange. We are trying to form a group of economists and people

interested in participate.


This would take place on Saturday from 1-3pm. Jeremy showed us some

possible locations. The best one could be at Bowling Green, right by

the door of the National Museum, though there are spots available at

Battery Park and Chase Manhattan.


The content and format of the forum depend on the interested

participants. In general terms, we would like to do something oriented

to a general audience, and of course the intention is more to help and

facilitate debates, and not giving long talks. As a suggestion, I

copypaste here the 5 points that are programmed in a similar event

that will take place in Madrid (see below)


If you are interested in collaborate on this, please contact me at, or Michael
