Austerity Games and the Global Impacts of Wall Street


There is a list of events at Occupy Boston Arts & Culture Event Archive.

One event that I found was from the Free School University at Occupy Boston, Austerity Games and the Global Impacts of Wall Street.

Below are the descriptions of the three parts of the video. You’ll have to view them on Facebook.

Some comments in praise of Fed policy and Ben Bernanke occur at about 7:15 into the third segment of the video.

Part 1 of 3: Mark Blyth (professor of international political economy at Brown University and fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies) and Kevin P. Gallagher (associate professor of international relations at Boston University and research associate at the Global Development and Environment Institute, Tufts University) discuss how Wall Street interests have hijacked the debates of crisis and debt in the US and across the globe and in so doing have duped publics into thinking that austerity is the route to recovery and growth. Nothing could be further from the truth.
