Below is the cover of today’s New York Post. It’s beginning to feel as though the Occupy Wall Street movement may actually have some legs. For those following along, these are the types of protests that should have begun in 2008, not three years after TARP and ZIRP and the 2009 bonuses and the 2010 bonuses and secret Fed loans and the Treasury backstop guarantees with no accountability or direction to make loans attached, and on and on.
I’m not ready to say that this movement will amount to anything, but I am becoming impressed with the tenacity of the growing crowd down at Zuccotti Park – even if it’s just barely coming to the point where there is a cohesion of message. In other words, I’m not embracing this just yet but I am done poking fun at it.
