OWS Polyvocality at Yale

To assist readers in staying current on the many voices weighing on in this topic here on campus…

Last Thursday there was an event that happened here on campus among some Yale economists. You can read about it here.

Also, coming up on Thursday the 20th, The William F. Buckley Program is putting on a lecture by Prof. Charles Hill on the subject of OWS at 4:00 pm at 280 WHS. The William F. Buckley Program’s mission is to provide a “home for conservative thought” and “promote intellectual diversity” at Yale. It seems like this would be a great chance to hear additional perspectives on this topic.
