According to Occupywallst.org, Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011. They are “fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process.”
So, with that in mind, how much do the protesters actually know about the economic system they are fighting to change? New York Magazine asked 50 occupiers a series of questions about Wall Street, taxes and government. You can see the quiz and the results here.
It’s an interesting read (and a good quiz for a Friday). Please note that we know the survey isn’t scientific, but we thought the results were a bit entertaining. Be sure you read the comments following the quiz to get the flavor of all sides of this debate.
