Take a look out the window. Chances are if your offices are in a major American city, a group of Occupy Wall Street protestors are converging near the financial district. In Chicago, the protests taking place on LaSalle and Grant Park can range from 30 or so to the hundreds, with protestors ranging in age from high school and college kids to the elderly. 

When the revolt began on September 17, most major media outlets ignored it. The initial take was that it was just a handful of professional protestors looking for a cause. Since then, the movement—although still without a leader or a message beyond protesting economic imbalance—has spread to more than two dozen cities and grown to include more than a dozen trade unions, celebrities and everyday people who aren’t disenfranchised college kids. The movement has so far raised more than $300,000 and is expected to become a serious topic for discussion in the 2012 presidential election.
