Subbing for Rachel Maddow, Ezra Klein talks about the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Specifically, he points out that the “99%” don’t resent that there is a “1%”, but rather the fact that the “1%” enjoy a privileged set of rules that the rest of us don’t get to enjoy, and they are only ones benefitting from this country’s wealth.

Ezra also interviews Naomi Klein about this issue.
