Occupy Wall Street - the beginning of a new era? | Catarina's World
Occupy Wall Street - the beginning of a new era? | Catarina's World: According to Occupy Wall Street’s official web site the revolution continues world-wide. Considering that protests have taken place in 100 US and 1,500 cities around the world maybe it’s time to question if people are fed up with the way the global economy works? Or as the movement put it “the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future”. And they have a point. Twenty million jobs have been lost world-wide since Lehman Brothers collapsed and some experts believe another 20 million will be lost in the next couple of years.
