BERKELEY The Occupy Handbook, a new publication examining the factors contributing to the Occupy Wall Street movement as well as where it stands now and where it goes next contains contributions by leading economic scholars, including UC Berkeleys own economists Emmanuel Saez, Brad DeLong and Robert Reich. The book hit the bookstore shelves today (Tuesday, April 17).
Saez is well known for his work on income inequality; DeLong is an economic historian with one of the most popular blogs dealing with economics and politics; and Reich recently described himself in a blog post as a class worrier rather than a class warrior.
Other well-known economists who wrote for the book include Nobel Prize-winning Paul Krugman, Peter Diamond, Raghuram Rajan, Paul Volker, Robert Shiller, Tyler Cowan and Nouriel Roubini. Additional contributors come from politics, journalism, financial reporting and other disciplines.

Reserve your copy now, before they're sold out!
Hopefully the OWSers don’t buy it and instead shoplift it instead. Just like Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book.

“Nobel Prize-winning Paul Krugman”... wait a minute, Obama ‘won’ the same thing. Gee, could it be a libtard/Soros feel good award?

We know all about those folks. They are the ones who didn't take the proper opportunities in life to end up with the material things they wanted to collect. They may have a degree in underwater basket weaving but have since found out that it just does not get them a good paying job. They then step off in the pile of liberal dog crap that tells them that their life choices are not their fault and that the rest of us who have been busting our butts and succeeded in life owe them something. All we owe them is a cold fire hose dousing on a winters night. And they need to get the hell out of the public parks when their permits expire. Removing them with police dogs at full leash and fully agitated up gets my vote. Basically they are dumb-ass city morons who aren't getting enough free stuff.
If they have earned the right to protest than the working people of this country have more than earned the right to tell them to STFU!!!!!

I think the rule is at last one per group has to be literate.
I can see them all gathered around a speaker listening intently and giving their twinkles up and down when prompted.
