Occuptation hurt by lack of focus

It’s sad to see the Occupy Vancouver protest turning into a circus because of a few hooligans.

There were some very credible issues that got pushed to the background.

I hope Occupy Wall Street fares better.

The global imbalances are getting worse as time goes on.

This protest was a lot like the world at large; everyone’s partying but no one’s steering the ship.

People seem more worried about the lawn there than the issues at hand.

In a year’s time, the lawn will be repaired and no one will know they were there.

If only the world’s balance sheets could be repaired as quickly.
