There at the start of Occupy Wall Street, Anthropologist David Graeber teaches at Goldsmiths, University of London, recently appointed professor at the London School of Economics and author of, The Democracy Project: A History, a Crisis, a Movement, he now argues for a re-awakened democracy.
Longtime activist and professor David Graeber helped found the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011 and even coined the phrase "We are the 99%." While Occupy encampments are no longer a staple of cities across the United States, Graeber credits the movement with jump-starting a broader shift toward radical democracy in America, as he explains in his new book, "The Democracy Project: A History, a Crisis, a Movement."
