Today at Occupy Seattle...
Today, at Occupy Seattle, I watched as a man gave an hour long crash course in Credit Default Swaps, Derivatives, And other toxic economic scams and how they led to the collapse of the economy. I counted 76 people taking this impromptu course in economics. Think about that for a second - about 80 Americans, standing on a street corner discussing economics instead of sitting at home watching TV. That is a monumental shift. That is change you can believe in.
