Why is the U.S. Fed Up? 8 Lectures from Occupy Harvard Teach-In Provide Answers
December 12th, 2011

Last Wednesday, the Occupy movement gained a little more intellectual
momentum when eight faculty members from Harvard, Boston College, and
N.Y.U. gathered in Cambridge to present a daylong Teach-In. In one
talk, Archon Fung (Ford Foundation Professor of Democracy and
Citizenship and Co-Director of Transparency Policy Project at Harvard)
took a vague thesis of the Occupy movement — “Shit is Fucked Up and
Bullshit” — and gave it some academic depth in a data-filled talk
called “Why Has Inequality Grown in America? And What Should We Do
About It?” The other talks are available on YouTube (see links below)
