Occupy Starbucks!


Although, any display of corporate consumer goods does not reveal what is less transparent in the financial system. Paul Krugman has taken a positive approach to this movement although his support seems more confined to the  financial sector rather than some kind of broad revolution some aspire to. I saw one placard that 'this street is responsible for all global poverty'? Well not really given that outside the USA and Eurozone global poverty continues to decline, and in the same week there was news of a new famine in North Korea. I wasn't aware that Goldman Sachs operated in North Korea? 

From an economic perspective (linked from Krugman) this is perhaps the most nuanced placard of the movement?
