|Subject:||[september17discuss] Open Economy Forum - Final Outline|
here is the final outline of the Open Economy Forum at Occupy Wall St.
I suggest meeting at 12:40pm at South Bowling Green for discuss final
details (order of speakers, moderation, etc).
Place: Bowling Green, right at the entrance of the National Museum of
the American Indian.
This is the list of confirmed participants as I have it right now.
Please let me know if I miss anyone:
(Order of speakers to be defined tomorrow)
Michael Abouzelof - Transnational Capitalist Class.
Diane Sare - Glass-Steagall and the American system of credit (DIANE
Justin Wedes - Tax havens.
Christopher Rude - Capitalist production and finance: the difference
between interest-bearing and fictitious capital.
David Graeber - Debt and Empire.
Myles Robinson - Economics of human creative development

list of participants, and/or organize two groups going on
simultaneously, for example. However, please keep in mind that we have

This forum will be livestreamed in coordination with similar
activities in other countries through http://www.livestream.com/globalrevolution
(Thanks Nikky for all your work on that!)
A final reminder on the format of this forum:
- Please respect a maximum length of 10 minutes.
- Presentations are intended to help raise debate, questions, etc.
among the audience. Please try to be informative and focused on
raising questions, awareness on issues outside of mainstream economic
information on the media, etc.
- All theoretical perspectives are welcome. However, and following the
previous point, please try to explain the issue you want to talk about
from your perspective, theoretical frame, intellectual tradition etc.
but please do not conceive your intervention as an opportunity to
proof an exclusive point of view, make propaganda of a specific group.
This is an occasion to learn, debate, and learn from each other.
- Feel free to bring materials, handouts, etc. that may help
clarifying specific points of your presentation: graphs, stats, etc.
And a note for other members of this group: would it be possible to
have a sign (a sheet, some cardboard, whatever works) announcing the
Forum? Can someone do this? I can't right now. It just needs to say
"Open Economy Forum" (and whatever you may want to add). Please let me
Please let me know if I miss anything. I'm really excited about
tomorrow, and looking forward meeting you. Thanks all for your
participation in this forum.
Occupy Wall St!
See you tomorrow!
