A George Soros-funded economist taught a course to the Occupy Wall Street protesters purportedly to help the activists better understand what caused the global financial crisis.
Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz also recently addressed the so-called social protests rocking Spain.
Besides accepting funding from the controversial billionaire, Stiglitz has engaged in numerous projects with Soros and sits on the boards of Soros organizations, including one openly seeking to remake the world's economy.
Stiglitz is a leading proponent of more government regulation of the economy.
He previously chaired the Commission on Global Financial Issues of Socialists International, the world's largest socialist organization.
Last year, he gave a lecture titled "A New Economic World Order" in which his presentation called for the world to be "no longer dominated by one 'superpower.'"
During his teach-in for the Occupy Wall Street protesters last week, Stiglitz declared banks "prey on the poorest Americans."
