Blair Says Occupy Wall Street Protest Lacks Answers on Economy

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said those protesting against the financial industry may not have the answers to economic improvement.

“I’ll tell you my problem with the Occupy Wall Street thing,” Blair said today in San Francisco at a conference for investment advisers held by Charles Schwab Corp. “A protest is not the same as a policy. Someone who’s demonstrating will often make demands, but they don’t necessarily have answers.”
