Occupy Wall Street comes to Ec 10

The Harvard Crimson has the story.  Ironically, the topic for today's lecture is the distribution of income, including the growing gap between the top 1 percent and the bottom 99 percent.  I am sorry the protesters will miss it.

  1. The open letter that attacks ec 10.
  2. A student comes to ec 10's defense.
  3. Here's what happened: About 5 to 10 percent of the class participated in the walk-out. At the same time, some previous ec 10 students came in to sit in the lecture as counter-protesters. The lecture then proceeded as planned.
  4. The Crimson offers an editorial on the protest.
