A Public Forum
Point Lounge, 3rd Fl. Campus Center
The Occupy Wall Street movement has not only sparked offshoots in virtually every major U.S. city, it has also shone a spotlight on the grotesque economic inequality in this country, where the richest 1% of Americans control over 40% of the wealth — more than the entire bottom half of the population. The Occupy movement has raised the hopes of millions of people who want to see fundamental change in our society. The question is: “How?” How can this historic inequality be fixed? Can we reform the present system or do we need revolutionary change? Is capitalism itself at the heart of the problem, and if so, what kind of system could replace it?
