Occupied Media’s most recent virtual teach-in is with EPI economist Larry Mishel. EPI is celebrating its 25th year fighting for the 99%. EPI was recently recognized by the Washington Post and Paul Krugman. Krugman had this to say about EPI and Larry Mishel:
At this point EPI is the single best source for analysis of labor issues, one of the best sources of macroeconomic analysis, and in general a bastion of humane clarity. The institute’s success demonstrates just how powerful it is when you combine intellectual integrity with commitment, when you make a point of doing the math right, but also never forget that you stand for something….
Put it this way: I’ve had a number of meetings with senior officials along with other progressive economists, and I always feel that of the group, Larry Mishel is talking the most sense — and, whaddya know, agreeing with me.
I was really struck with his clear commitment to making a more decent, more equal society (he ended the interview by saying we had to do another one).
Thanks, as always, to everyone with the Occupy Missoula Occupied Media Working Group and a huge thanks to video editor Paul Shockey. –Taryn Hart, Occupied Media
