    Interesting article by investor Jeff Green in the Wall Street Journal. He points out that many of the protesters are either unfocused or don't offer any solutions, but suggests those with the power and smarts to do so, should listen to the anxieties of "the 99%" and find solutions. :

    The fact Mr. Greene was "born into the 99% and joined the 1% later in life" makes his entire point moot.

    When they can speak in coherent sentences, and articulate specific concerns rather than babbling like babies about some mythical and meaningless figure of 99%, I'll listen.

    Ridiculing and ignoring problems is what got us in this financial mess in the first place. Time to face the facts, gents.
