Video: Graeber on Bloomberg: Debt, Greece and Occupy

What is the true nature of money? Why is debt considered such a moral issue? And do we truly live in a democracy? Anthropologist David Graeber reflects.

The anthropologist and political activist David Graeber, who was one of the early co-founders of the Occupy Movement and who coined its famous slogan ‘We Are the 99%’, appeared on Charlie Rose’s talk show on Bloomberg TV for a fascinating interview well worth sharing. I am currently reading his Debt: The First 5,000 Years (probably one of the best non-fiction books I’ve read in recent years). Make sure to check back for a review in early September.
