In the fall of 2007, when the U.S. economy first seemed in peril, I began answering reader queries here on the Business Desk. I still do so occasionally, but this page has expanded to include posts from eminent economists, "far-flung correspondents," and a variety of voices that have intriguing and/or useful things to say about economics, broadly defined. Please feel encouraged to respond to any and all of them.
Recently, Puppet Underground and Occupy DC hosted a 'Roving Kabaret' ('K' as in K St., which is one of the locations where the organization has set up tent) of various theatrical troupes that support the Occupy movement. Actors, occupiers and attendees toured the nation's capital, stopping at locations with historical significance to workers' rights. At each spot, organizers explained why the area was chosen and theatrical troupes and musicians performed.
Follow along with our 'guided tour' of the event, including photos of the day, historical tidbits, maps and recordings of folks who took part.
