Richard Wolff addresses Occupy Marin on January 7th, 2012 and discusses ideas such as imagining a democratic alternative to police evictions of Occupy encampments across America's cities and towns. What if the decision to evict or not had been made by referendum? Voters could have determined whether to continue the long overdue public debates over inequality, injustice and capitalism that were launched and sustained above all by the Occupy encampments.
Basic prospects for the US economy in 2012 opened this month's update.
