Robert Reich: People Have the Economic Power

Is Occupy Wall Street becoming more political?


Is Occupy Wall Street becoming more political? Will the next steps involve more focused political demands? What impact will it have on next year’s election? What is the connection between Occupy Wall Street and the Bank Transfer Day movement?

Robert Reich talks with Keith Olbermann on Countdown about the development of these popular movements and their impact on how we do politics in this country. Reich believes that "people have economic power" that can be used to move those who hold political power.
