The US Social Forum is proud to present our 2010 Plenary Conversation, happening Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 6:30-9pm. We created the plenary as one continuous dialogue over three evening sessions. The narrative for the dialogue will speak to the rise, crisis, and re-constitution of neo-liberalism and how it’s increased concentration of power and decision-making in the hands of the international financial/business elite, at the expense of ordinary people.
