Speaking at Occupy Sydney, Saturday 12pm

Flattr this!

I am one of sev­er­al speak­ers tomor­row at Occu­py Syd­ney (there are a num­ber of web­sites on this top­ic; Occu­py Syd­ney; Occu­py Aus­tralia). Accord­ing to the organ­is­ers:

The event will begin at 12.00pm and will begin with a wel­come to coun­try from an indige­nous rep­re­sen­ta­tive fol­lowed by some intro­duc­tions etc from the three MC’s and then the speak­ers (in no par­tic­u­lar order). There will be five speak­ers includ­ing your­self speak­ing for ten min­utes each… There will then be two speak­ers with five min­utes each.

Lat­er in the after­noon there will be a ‘tour’ of the Mar­tin Place area’s financial/corporate build­ings to inform peo­ple of their wrong doings and neg­a­tive actions. There is a few name sug­ges­tions such as the cor­po­rate pirates tour, the cor­po­rate scum­bags tour, the cor­po­rate greed­ers tour which will be vot­ed on today at some point…

Short­ly I’ll post some pho­tos from last Sat­ur­day’s ral­ly, which I attend­ed (but did not speak at). Id say there were 2,000 peo­ple there, and of course it is still going strong.

About Steve Keen

I am Professor of Economics and Head of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University London, and a long time critic of conventional economic thought. As well as attacking mainstream thought in Debunking Economics, I am also developing an alternative dynamic approach to economic modelling. The key issue I am tackling here is the prospect for a debt-deflation on the back of the enormous private debts accumulated globally, and our very low rate of inflation.
