Why Wall Street should pay attention to Occupy Wall Street

  • by: Phoner

Occupy Wall Street is now a favorite subject for the media. They seem to vacillate between admiration and disdain. Certainly Fox News leans more towards disdain while MSNBC is more open to examining their complaints. I hope that Wall Street is paying attention. Whether you like them or not, Occupy Wall Street is one symptom of a greater issue – falling confidence.

Each month consumer confidence is reported as an indicator of expected future economic performance. Confidence in the value of the dollar is evidenced by foreign currency exchange rates. Confidence in the Federal Government is reflected in surveys with the general public and by investors with the yield rates on treasury bills. Confidence is a valuable indicator and positive economic outcomes in the long run require confidence – the confidence to spend, the confidence to borrow, he confidence that you will have a job and the confidence to invest.

The Occupy __ (fill in your city) movement is, fundamentally, about fairness; the belief that the economic system is not fair to most people in the United States. Protestors believe that if you work hard to get an education and a job, that you should be able to prosper. The reality they see is that people in finance who game the system have prospered enormously while following the rules may leave you jobless and in debt. They believe that if you should start to get ahead, the financial system is set up to fleece small investors while the powerful prosper at the rest of society’s expense. That is, they have lost confidence in our economic system.

As long as that loss of confidence is limited to scattered encampments in large cities around the country (and world) the protestors are merely a noisy distraction to Wall Street, and perhaps a tourist draw for the curious. But surveys taken since the beginning of the protests indicate that the OWS movement is the true cutting edge of a wave of dissatisfaction with the direction of our country. TEA Party groups blame the government for their dissatisfaction, while OWS blames greed and the influence of money on the political process. Both groups know something is wrong, and the OWS movement has been growing in influence.

Our stock markets require investor confidence to attract capital. No investor will send money to his broker with the expectation that he will be fleeced. As more investors examine the arguments of the OWS movement, they may come to agree that the system is rigged against them. If this results in dollars slowly being pulled out of the market, then Wall Street ignores the complaints of the OWS movement at its peril. This loss of confidence will likely not result in a run on the markets, rather is would be evidenced by a slow decline as individuals come to the conclusion that the American dream does not flow through Wall Street.

Is Occupy Wall Street the tip of the iceberg or an annoyance to the wealthy? The public is now focusing on the growing income gap and time will tell.



One thought on “Why Wall Street should pay attention to Occupy Wall Street

  1. Nike Air Max is a shoe by the company Nike that was introduced in 1987 as the first example of Air Max-branded technologies. The Nike Air Max shoe uses a large air cushioning unit which is visible at the side of the midsole in most models. Especially sought after models include the 1987 (Air Max I), 1990 (Air Max III), 1991 (Air Max 91), 1993, 1995, 1997, and to an extent, 2003. The 1993 model was the first to have the fully visible heel Air unit that was visible in the back as well as on the sides, and the 1995 model was the first to feature visible forefoot Air. The 1997 model was the first to include a full length Air bag. The Beatles’ song “Revolution” was used in a television commercial to promote the shoe. It was the first and only time that a song performed by the Beatles was used in a TV ad.

    The shoes have always been high tech for their time so runners have always worn them, but they are equally valuable as a casual shoe. They are generally fairly comfortable and the designs and colors are very inspired in some cases. The 1995 model was extremely popular for a long time and saw many color ways introduced. Its popularity has waned but many people still love the shoe. Originally it was met with some skepticism due to its suede construction, high price tag and neon accent color. International collectors quickly came to love the shoe and eventually it became popular in the USA as well. Nike max 1!

    Different types of Air Max cushioning include “Air Max2” which doesn’t have the “holes” in the cushioning unit and is of high pressure, “Tube Air” which is visible in several small circles on the midsole of the shoe, “Total Air” which is basically just another word for full Air Max cushioning, “Tuned Air,” which is a system of individual pods supposedly “tuned” to different areas of the foot. There was also “180 Air in the early 1990s which was visible through the bottom of the shoe (although smaller portions of Air units are visible through the bottom of many Air Max models) and another type of Air cushioning is the low profile and very responsive “Zoom Air.” Air Max cushioning has been used in shoes for almost all sports by now including basketball, cross training, golf, casual shoes, sandals, tennis, etc; however the “Nike Air Max” is always a running shoe. An example of a basketball shoe would be “Air Max Up-tempo.” On the 21st January 2006 Nike launched the Air Max 360. A revolutionary shoes design that utilized ‘Max Air’ through out the shoes midsole. Traditionally, running shoes have used cushioning systems combined with foam midsoles. Foam midsoles generally last for about 500 miles before their shock absorbing properties deteriorate. The use of ‘360’ of air cushioning ensures the shoes longevity. This is the logical conclusion to the Nike Air Max 95 story.

    From entertainment to healthy, Nike has changed their way to lead the functions of sport shoes. Just make money is not the final target of Nike; find the new ways of innovation is the first target for Nike air max to become winner in the sport world.

    From the original of nike air max зимние, it was thirty years after. Nike’s technology has changed day by day. The classic type is Nike shock technology. All road cars have shock absorbers meant to give a smooth ride. Nike took this concept and applied shock-absorber-like columns on the heel area of their shoes featuring this technology. This gives the runner something very similar to an independent suspension of a road car. The effect is more traction and cushioning that adapts to where it is needed.

    Long period development of Nike Company produced several of shoes for customers to choose. Air Max 90 is the first shoe that Nike become popular, Nike running is the other way for Nike to expand their ways from concern runner’s life. Then Nike has developed Nike basketball shoes and Nike Football Shoes as its biggest sales to attractive customers. However, with the equal competitors – Adidas, Nike knows the method to make itself outstanding – Innovation new products with high technology.

    Yet, after year’s development, Nike air max купить shoes have changed their mind to new technology. From traditional technology, the Nike Shox NZ 2.0 SI is the symbol of new shoes. The Nike Shox NZ 2.0 SI is a very comfortable shoe, but it also is very stylish. The Black and Sprinter Green color combo is one of the greatest color schemes ever in a Nike Shoe. Simply yet bold, futuristic yet old school. The Nike Shocks NZ 2.0 SI is great shoe for heavy runners and walkers. If you are a big man, the Nike Shox NZ 2.0 SI will work a lot better than the Nike Max Airs. If you have never worn Nike Shox before, then you will need to know that the shoe is not as comfortable right out of the box. You must “break your Shox in”. Once the Shox are broke in, they tend to be more comfortable and durable for heavier people.

    Even so Nike has never given up their way to Nike Air Max shoes, from Air Jordan shoes become popular, and Nike has introduced new pair each year. The Nike Air Max Turbulence+ 16 is another show from Nike that not only looks great, but is very function able for use as an athletic shoe. The Nike Air Max Turbulence+ 16 running shoe is great not only for runners, but also walkers who want a heavily cushioned shoe. If you walk a lot and tend to experience a lot of “shin splints” then give the Nike Air Max Turbulence+ 16 a try for a few weeks. The heavy cushioning allows many walkers the ability to rid themselves of the painful shin splints. Most of Nike shoes is benefit, healthy for human body, with the resist of confident, high technology Nike shoes will help you find the way to best.
