Confession time... I don't watch a lot of news. In fact, I probably wouldn't watch the news at all, but it ranks high up there with my wife's favorite "shows." However, I did get myself out from under the rock to catch a bit about this "Occupy Wall Street" stuff. I would have likely written about it before, but I went to a conference to learn to be a better Personal Finance Blogger. As you might be able to tell, the first dose didn't take.
So today I'd like
trick readers into educating me allow you to take the stage and tell me what this is all about. It seems like it might have something to do with the bank failings in 2008, but I missed that as well since I was in Australia at the time. If it were about that, it seems to me like the protests are about 2 years and 11 months too late.
Don't limit yourself to explaining Occupy Wall Street - tell me how you feel about it. I'm leaning towards agreeing with the movement. One thing giving me pause is that there are so many protests here in San Francisco and Berkeley that it is hard to take any of them seriously anymore.
