Synopsis "We are the 99 percent" is the rallying cry of millions of people involved in the "Occupy Wall Street" movement. This is the first book to pull together in once place detailed information about the 1 per cent and the 99 per cent in all realms of society, the causes and consequences of this deep inequality, and what can be done about it. The focus of the worldwide "Occupy" protests is creating a world that works for 99 per cent of people and businesses, not just the richest and most powerful 1 per cent. But who are the 99 per cent? Who are the 1 per cent? How extensive and systemic is inequality in different areas of society? What are its causes and consequence? How is inequality changing in our world? And what can be done about it? For many years Chuck Collins has been a top leader in studying, speaking about, and writing about these questions. In this book he brings together in one place, for the first time, information that has been widely scattered in many different articles, reports, and websites. He provides revealing and powerful information about inequality in all realms of today's world, including individual wealth and power, corporate wealth and power, media control, political influence, and other areas. He then describes the functioning of the "Wall Street Inequality Machine" and describes how inequality wrecks everything we care about. And he tells how people and groups are pushing back against inequality and taking action to reduce inequality and create a world that works for the many and not just the few.
