Teach-in looks at how the 1 percent crashed the economy

How did 1 percent of the population end up with 40 percent of our nation’s wealth? Why have middle class wages been stagnant while America has grown richer by the year? And, most importantly, what can we, the 99 percent, do about it?

These questions and others related will be examined at a teach-in sponsored by Transition Staunton-Augusta Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. at the Staunton Public Library.

In conjunction with the growing Occupy movement, Transition Staunton-Augusta co-founder Erik Curren will give a presentation on how our immediate economic situation relates to energy and ecology and to the goals of the Transition movement to build strong local economies.

The event is free and open to the public.
