Uh,Oh! Occupy Freaks Begin To Eat Their Own!

 

 

From Adbusters.org

After 70 students staged a walk-out of Gregory Mankiw’s infamous Econ 10 last week, graduate and undergraduate students from all departments have now escalated the struggle. Yesterday students moved into the campus’s cherished Harvard Yard. By midnight, 500+ battled through police and security to set up an encampment, and now the eyes of the nation are having a double-take. There are serious rumblings in the aristocratic heartland.

Harvard University is a jewel in the crown of America’s economic armature, and its economics department has been a platform for years of an ongoing power struggle waged by an unburdened elite. The university’s top professors and deans, from Mankiw to Dr. Martin Feldstein to Dr. Lawrence Summers, were architects of the 2008 collapse and key authorities in the intellectual campaign for systemic deregulation.

If an occupation can happen at Harvard, it can happen anywhere. Now is the time for a global walk-out. Download a poster of the True Cost Economics Manifesto at kickitover.org and pin it up in the corridor of your department.

    I couldn’t afford to go to Harvard, even though I got in. I’m pretty sure those little crybabies are the 1%.

    *This* is what the #OWS movement has become. A bunch of whiny brats who don’t want to work for a living. “Gimmegimmegimme. Because I’m too lazy to get it myself.”

    ARGH!

    Harvard actually has the most generous financial aid package in the world.

    Well, @Harvard, I wasn’t willing to mortgage my future with “financial aid” when I could make just as much $$ after college by going to a highly-respected state school. I graduated without debt. I’m happy I did so.

    @Harvard2012, that’s what makes it all the more ironic! Thanks for the link.
