Subject:   [september17discuss] Open Economy Forum at Occupy Wall St.

Hi all,


here is an outline for the Open Economy Forum at Occupy Wall St:


Time: 1pm-3pm

Place: Bowling Green, right at the entrance of the National Museum of

the American Indian.


According to what we have received until now, there will be 5

presentations. Presenters will have to introduce one issue (max. 10

min). After the presentations, debate will be open to interventions in

the audience.


Michael Abouzelof - Transnational Capitalist Class

Diane Sare - Glass-Steagall and the American system of credit

Justin Wedes - Tax havens

Christopher Rude - Capitalist production and finance: the difference

between interest-bearing and fictitious capital

David Graeber - Debt?

the audience, we suggest to keep the presentations focused on

explaining a certain economic mechanism, and not so much in proving a



If someone wants to join and do presentations on other points, please

let us know.


See you soon at WallSt!
