‘Occupy’ Crowd Too Focused on Wall Street, Not Enough on Corporate Power: Author

“But for those who say the Wall Street protesters need to offer specific demands, James Hoopes, professor of ethics at Babson College disagrees: “They’re wrong. Occupy Wall Street already has a specific demand. It is aimed not at investment banks or government, but at us ordinary citizens. The protestors are demanding that we stop trusting corporate power,” he writes.
