Tyler Cowen from MR was at the Diane Rehm show yesterday talking about OWS. It is available online here and his (short) participation is around 20:30. I thought it was much better than his latest NYT article on the same subject (I left a comment about that in MR).
I think that whole show is a good example of how this OWS ‘movement’ is a farse. You have one or two guys trying to keep the conversation going within some reason but the rest are just crazy folks. They talk about invading homes, “gumming up” the system (see around 35:00) and so on. There was also a good point made by a caller (around 43:00) on the different ways OWS and Tea Party were judged.
I know I’ve been talking a lot about this but to me the fact that these people are actually being taken seriously by the media is mind–boggling. It is a dangerous and irresponsible thing in my opinion, since that attention might be inciting these people to go the next step, which is violence. Nobody wants to see that.
