11/14 David Graeber, Occupy Wants To Relieve Your Debt

November 14, 2012

Professor David Grabaer explained why our understanding of debt is flawed, why we keep telling ourselves a false narrative of debt, student loans and Occupy, how the debt crises and the ecological crises are the same thing, how the Rolling Jubilee will work and what is financial disobedience?

On the Better Half: Spanish banks hold up evictions in cases of extreme hardship after a woman commits suicide, floods threatening Italian economy accelerating due to climate change and Sam takes another Libertarian caller to the Sam Seder Learning Annex.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
