Dear Occupy Wall St.,
I don't frequent this forum, so forgive me if this has been mentioned before. If it has, I can't understand why it is not the main focus of this movement.
The heart of all of the problems you are seeing lies with the current BANKING system. It has little to do with capitalism as an economic philosophy. Our current banking system, which has been practiced since currency was a thing, is a massive pyramid scheme, to say the least. Money creation (or lack thereof) is completely controlled by the BANKING "class", if you will.
We must amend the constitution so that the government issues our currency, and it is not tied to debt. Money should only be created proportionately to the size of the population. Our central bank, the Federal Reserve, can expand and contract the money supply as it wishes. I can go into it more but I want to see if people will read this.
This will solve many problems of scarcity when it comes to money.
