Occupy Wall Street
So it appears that hip hop heavyweights Kanye West & Russell Simmons have joined the 1000’s of protesters of Occupy Wall Street.
Now both these men are multi-millionaires, so is it possible for them to speak to the masses on what it’s like to be robbed by banksters?
I guess you could argue that their companies employ hundreds of people, which helps to support and maintain some type of middle class. It doesn’t take an Austrian economist to tell me that this is a good thing. Kanye was even on I’m So Appalled making references to crooked bankers and businessmen, (if I didn’t misinterpret it).
On the other hand, Russell Simmons Rush Card is THE prime example of banking malpractice.
“the RushCard costs $19.95 to obtain, and $1 per transaction to use (that fee is capped at $10 a month). Using one to draw money from an A.T.M. costs $1.95 plus whatever the A.T.M.’s owner tacks on. While direct deposits are free, there are fees to add money in the form of cash (at services like MoneyGram or CheckFreePay) or paper checks. If this sounds like a lot to pay for the privilege of spending your own money, well, that’s a pretty routine scenario for the unbanked.” Grandgood.com
