The Occupy Movement has brought increasing attention to questions of injustice and inequalities in U.S. society. It has also opened up a conversation about the nature and future of capitalism, and whether there are viable alternatives to the present system. Two provacative thinkers - one a conventionally trained economist, the other an advocate of communist revolution - come together to explore and debate the question of capitalism vs. socialism.
