Forum Post: Occupy 1% jobs

The Occupy Movement should start it's own transparent community based bank. Publish everything but customer private information. How much is coming in, how much is going out. How money is being loaned/invested. Back it with a real substance instead of US dollars.

The movement proves enough people exist who support the ideals of OWS. There is absolutely no reason why we cannot replace these failed businesses with our own that actually practice business a way we can support.

I think we should be looking at our current economic circumstance as an opportunity.

Lies, back it with a precious metal or some other tangible good that has real value.

We remove our wealth from their system. Let them corrupt their system all they want, let them run the dollar into the ground. We should take the steps we need to protect our own wealth instead of entrusting it to a broken system.

The IRS says Barter is illegal and will come after you. We would have to end up like Argentina did to even try this.

Aboslute rubbish. The rich barter services. Why shouldn't we?

It is rubbish and the rich don't play by the common mans rules. Its been that way since time began. The majority of the 1% left America or at least got their money out by 2006. They had the intel to see what was coming. The tax brackets keep getting pushed down to the middle class more and more. With the baby boomers retiring it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the writing on the wall. We have been jacked.

Because then you would have to have some kind of structure. And these guys hate structure. And what kind of substance are you going to back it with?? If you don't back it with dollars, you got nothing. Business at the bank is changing. There's a reason all of these CEO's are running out. It's not because of Occupy, either. It's because of computers. Now that they can be tracked, they are taking what they can get and running
