We are sympathetic with the view Nicholas Kristof takes in his latest New York Times OpEd that “much of the sloganeering at 'Occupy Wall Street' is pretty silly — but so is the self-righteous sloganeering of Wall Street itself. And if a ragtag band of youthful protesters can help bring a dose of accountability and equity to our financial system, more power to them.”
Capital Institute is working on developing a response to the "Occupy Wall Street" movement with a set of clearly delineated goals for the transition to a financial system that serves a more just and resilient economy. We welcome your input. Please submit your comments for the three most critical transition goals here.
