Focus on Capitalism

Vijay Prashad, the George and Martha Kellner Chair in South Asian History and Professor of International Studies at Trinity College, spoke before Occupy Boston activists in front of the Federal Reserve building Oct. 23, 2011.  He is the author of “The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World.”  Prashad, a self-described socialist, talked to the crowd about his problems with capitalism, or what he calls the “militarized economy.”
