Author And Anthropologist David Graeber Passes Away

Anthropologist, activist, and author David Graeber passed away at the age of 59. Graeber aided in organizing the Occupy Wall Street movement and was famed for books like Debt: The First 5000 Years, The Utopia of Rules, and Bullshit Jobs: A Theory. His final book, The Dawn of Everything: a New History of Humanity, co-written with David Wengrow, will be published in 2021. The news of his death was confirmed by his partner and artist Nika Dubrovsky on Twitter.

It was Graeber who had popularized the phrase, “We are the 99 per cent”. His constant critique of capitalism and bureaucracy was well known and documented in his books. One of the most popular figures in the Occupy Wall Street movement, he was a professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics (LSE) at the time of passing away.
