"As we head into 2012, there are a lot of questions about where the Occupy energy will go from here" writes Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel.  "I’m confident it will move in powerful directions–fighting unjust foreclosures and evictions, exploring alternative banking, taking on outrageous student debt, countering the corrosive role of corporate money in politics, and allying in new ways with the growing ranks of poor Americans. But there are also tangible reforms that make a real difference in people’s lives and speak to OWS principles, and would benefit from its energy and activism."
