One thought on “More Lectures Added

  1. We would also like to extend an invitation for anyone to attend our Open Classroom Series of lectures at Northeastern University. Wednesday evenings 6 to 8 pm. This series, begun four years ago, take a graduate policy seminar and opens it to the public free-of-charge (the handful of enrolled students taking it for credit still pay their tuition though). Each semester has a different theme. This semester examines “The Role of Government in the 21st Century.” Each week focuses on a different topic within that theme. For instance, last week we focused on Income and Wealth Inequality. Last night’s was on Rights vs. Market Goods. Next week, on 10/19, will be a lecture on Milton vs. Friedman.

    We realize that the invitation is to lectures that take place on campus and not at the Occupy Boston site, but perhaps it’s more for folks who have not committed to be at the site during this time.
