The real problem of the 99% is not, in the first instance, the banks or even capitalism. It is economics, which is not a science but a faith based on a series of misconceptions of economic reality. We can resolve society's economic, social and environmental problems by doing away with the misconceptions of standard economics. Find a substantiation of this argument in the book Crisis, Economics and the Emperor’s Clothes, which can be downloaded for free as a pdf from the website www.new-economics.info. The book discusses the failures of economics, and how these failures work out for society. Even more important, it offers alternatives and solutions for the economic, social and environmental problems facing us. Give it a try, read the book (there is also a short version, The Common Sense Manifesto, also downloadable for free) and if you see something in what is proposed, spread the word!
