Social change activist and author David Korten speaks on "Wall Street or the Common Good"

David Korten - Wall Street or the Common Good (lecture)

The Occupy Wall Street movement is growing. Mumia Abu-Jamal from his jail cell writes: “In Lower Manhattan's Zucotti Park, renamed 'Liberty Square' by the demonstrators, the cast of thousands swell in rebellion against the betrayals by the banks, Wall Street's relentless greed, the plague of joblessness and the craven servility of the political class, both Republicans and Democrats, to their moneyed masters. In short, the central focus of their protest is capitalism, greed writ large. Begun mostly by unemployed urban youth, it has drawn the presence and support of public workers, students, teachers and a considerable number of gray hairs.
