The Best Sign That Occupy Wall Street Is WorkingS

Since the Occupy Wall Street movement, by design, doesn't have a list of demands, it can be hard to figure out whether or not it's "working." (Arguably, it's not supposed to "work" at all!) But this chart, put together by Politico's Dylan Byers, shows one area where the protests are succeeding: including "income inequality" in the conversation.

The chart shows mentions of the phrase "income inequality" in print, web and broadcast news as measured by Nexis, starting the week before the occupation (when it was spoken or written 91 times) to last week—when it was used almost 500 times. Not bad for a group of people who almost fell apart over a bunch of drummers.
