A good friend tweeted me that question a week ago. I procrastinated for a couple of days, knowing that I was out of my depth on this issue, being neither a social scientist nor a political analyst. Besides, I'm an ex-investment banker who has never lived in America, with no ax to grind against an industry currently harangued by the Occupy Wall Street movement (OWS).
In the end, the challenge of an intriguing question got the better of me. After some research and much discernment, I tweeted back that, "I think this could eclipse the Tea Party Movement in terms of breadth and scope as it becomes a nationwide movement over time."
Do you agree? What do you think?
* There is an excellent timeline (and background) for Occupy Wall Street (OWS) here.

* There's a growing list of high-level economists who support this movement. Here's the link.
* There are rich capitalists and politicians who have likewise weighed in on this issue. Try this link.
* There are certainly many more materials on OWS available elsewhere on the Web for those really interested. Good luck!
