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.

Hopefully the OWSers don’t buy it and instead shoplift it instead. Just like Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book.
Robert Reich needs to stand for something....
To the wall, street occupiers!
They’re selling it?
Why aren’t they giving it away for free?
“Nobel Prize-winning Paul Krugman”... wait a minute, Obama ‘won’ the same thing. Gee, could it be a libtard/Soros feel good award?
Ten bucks for the Kindle edition.
Two ***** reviews so far...
Lots of marxists listed as contributors. I suspect a bias, n’est pas?
trying to cash in while they can...I see.
oui, wee (Reich) monsieur..
Handbook???? Wait, these people can READ?
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.
