Author-activist Chris Hedges discusses how problems with the current political system sparked the Occupy movement and where the movement is going. Co-sponsored by Boston Review and MIT’s Political-Science department, the presentation was part of the “Ideas Matter” series (www.bostonreview.net/ideasmatter); joining Hedges on the panel were Debra Satz, J. Phillip Thompson, and Nadeem Mazen.

The MIT press will soon release a book of essays called “Occupy the Future.”


Chris Hedges spent two decades as a foreign reporter covering wars in Latin America, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. His latest books are Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, Death of the Liberal Class, and The World as It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress.
