Democracy and the 99 Percent

2 segments

Today's show is a best-of, so we won't be taking any calls. But the comments page is always open!

On November 1, 2011 The Brian Lehrer Show invited special guests to the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space with to talk about Occupy Wall Street and voter participation.  Today, we rebroadcast that show.  In the first hour, former New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer, Greg David of Crain’s New York BusinessKathryn Wylde of the Partnership for New York City and Jesse LaGreca of Occupy Wall Street discuss the issues behind the movement. Then, panelists from voter participation groups discuss what’s keeping New Yorkers from the ballot box as part of a brainstorm session on what could help.
