What is debt? How did we get so much and what can we do about it?

This discussion of debt and finance will explore how debt's significance in our culture and society and how debt has changed over time. Central to the conversation will be the role of the state and banks in shaping our debt regime and the significance of Occupy Wall Street and other social movements that seek to resist or constrain the control of debtors by their creditors.
