Political and Financial Corruption

Gathering in the middle of New York City's financial district, Occupy Wall Street demonstrators pushed the American public to learn more about the scale of political and financial corruption that led to the 2008/2009 recession. "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!" was a common refrain at Occupy, as protesters echoed the lingering frustrations of Americans who felt that the CEOs, who were responsible for the fraud that led to the financial collapse, were not held accountable for their actions.
