URPE 2012 Summer Meeting "Political Economy of the 99%: Today and Tomorrow - Union for Radical Political Economists
The goal of this year’s conference is to bring together radical political economists and Occupy activists from around the country (some people are both). The conference will explore the power of the 1%, what it is based on, and how this power is exercised, economically, polit ically and militarily, both within the United States and internationally. At the same time, it will explore the challenges that the Occupy move ment is raising to this power and the new ways in which it is addressing this through its practice. Together we will explore different ideas as to how we can act today to address the issues we face, as well as how we envisage a just society, free of exploitation and oppression.
