This econ dude from Princeton, his econ wife and some other people (including Matt Taibbi), wrote an economic field guide called The Occupy Handbook for the Occupy Movement and published it. Salon has posted the first chapter called Economy Killers: Inequality and GOP Ignorance. Go check it out.
The official publication date is tomorrow, April 17. That it’s also Tax Day is probably no coincidence. I love stuff like this so I’ll spend a bit of my vanishing budget to by a Kindle edition. My question is, will this book be read by the average Joe Bag O’Donuts? Aren’t the writers preaching to the choir when they excerpt to Salon? Does this book have the capacity to cut through the media filter to reach a broader audience? Let’s hope so.
