In Berkeley: Occupy (the) wall (across the) street

The Institute for Research on Labor and Employment on Berkeley’s Channing Way found a novel way to enlarge on their research into income inequality last week.

Taking advantage of the white plastic-wrapped building under construction across the street (the Anna Head student housing complex), the IRLE decided to Occupy (the) Wall (across the) Street.

Visiting economist Jared Bernstein, former chief economist and economic advisor to Vice President Joe Biden, marked the event on his blog.
