Statistics Behind #OccupyWallStreet

I'm not going to get into too much details about this, as I'm sure you're hearing about it from other places. However, here is an excellent article from Business Insider, showing what the protesters are protesting for. This article is just nice, because it gives a bunch of peer reviewed graphs and charts, instead of the "99%/1%" argument. So here you are folks, time to get learned.

  8. Thanks for sharing this, just like everyone else is saying. It's good to hear something else that isn't this 99% argument, honestly I'm getting sick of it as it is. Good work!

  14. With a site named "business insider" I was expecting some protesters bashing demagogical BS, but since it's pretty much just statistics, it can't be too biased after all.
    Nice find.
