The National Occupation of Washington, D.C., which begins on March 30 and ends on April 30, will include protests, music and art, but its anchor is education of the movement. The major educational activities begin on April 2 with the "Control the Corporation" conference at the Carnegie Institute of Washington. The conference, organized by the Center for the Study of Responsive Law, included how people can work toward controlling corporations' impact on elections, slow privatization, create better-paying jobs and mobilize for the future. CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker took part in a panel discussion called "Occupy the Future" at 1 p.m. The full schedule is available on the conference website.
