Praise for The Trouble is the Banks

"Insight into the way different Americans experienced the financial crisis and recession since 2007." —The New York Times

"It’s a fantastic book, and well worth reading, mostly because it shows the potential power of Occupy’s new approach . . . Most upper-level bank executives have learned, by now, to tune out yelling and sign-waving protesters outside their windows . . . But a polite, eloquent letter personally addressed to them and sent to their office? That’s much harder to ignore. It’s not impossible to imagine a copy of this book slipping past an administrative assistant onto a CEO’s desk, being leafed through during a slow night at the office, and sparking a few minutes’ worth of serious self-reflection." —Daily Intel, New York Magazine

"A year ago this week, the original Occupy Wall Street camp in Zuccotti Park was evicted. The camps served as a focal point for a vibrant protest movement that shook up the country, but they galvanized the anger and fear of working people around the country, struggling to make it through the Great Recession. The mainstream press often did its best to portray the movement as simply a bunch of unwashed kids without a message, without demands. Yet if one ever doubted that the movement’s message got through, the collection of letters in The Trouble is the Banks, from Occupy the Boardroom and n+1 serves as proof." —Sarah Jaffe, Firedoglake.com
