Talking straight with money managers, policy makers and econ gurus

November 27, 2012

By Matthew Goldstein and Jennifer Ablan

We may not be TV people but there's something to be said for just sitting down and doing a video interview to discuss the big issues of the day. And that's just what we did as part of this year's Reuters Investment Outlook Summit and it's something we hope to keep doing as  a regular feature going forward into the new year.

By Matthew Goldstein and Jennifer Ablan

About a year ago, Nobel Prize-winning liberal economist Joseph Stiglitz made a surprise appearance at the Occupy Wall Street camp site in Zuccotti Park, giving a speech to rally the protestors and support their causes of bringing attention to the economic divide between the 1 percent and everyone else in the U.S.

A voice of Occupy Wall Street

June 12, 2012

By Andrew Burton

When the Occupy Wall Street movement began their Spring Training sessions earlier this year, I realized I had focused much of my coverage throughout the fall of 2011 on the most sensationalistic events - large marches, mass arrests and sporadic violence. It dawned on me that I had seen very little photojournalistic work, from myself or other photographers, looking at Occupy Wall Street's more mundane or personal aspects - essentially, who the protesters were beyond the demonstrations.

By Anthony De Rosa
February 25, 2012

If you were to stop independent journalist Tim Pool on the street, you may think he's just a bike messenger, with his skull cap, hoodie and shoulder strap bag. What you may miss is that Pool has transformed himself into a mobile journalist.

Images of November

December 2, 2011

Occupying Starbucks

November 9, 2011

By Paul Hackett

I left the Occupy protest camp at St Paul's cathedral in London to go to Starbucks to file the pictures that I had taken. As I walked through the door I saw this man sitting there; of course it made me smile. I took a few images of him and then a member of staff put their hand over my lens. I knew that I had something, so it was fine. I sat close to him, got his name (Adam Murray) and sent the picture in. It was with the office a few minutes after I took it - I wish they were all that easy!
