1. I hope we never hear the statement from any politician again that 'we have to share the sacrifice'

Thankfully, OWS ended that part of the political dialogue. What it meant was in reality, 'make the little pay the gambling debts of the wealthy' and OWS made it clear that the people weren't buying it.

And I hope we do not hear the word 'austerity' here again, unless it's referring to the criminals who crashed the world's economies.

Where is the money? It didn't disappear, it has to be somewhere. I know that's a naive question, but as Michael Moore said, 'where did all the money go'?

Maybe some prosecutions of those who created these problems would help us find it and retrieve at least some of it.

Very good interview, as always.
