“This is not a recession. This is a robbery”

"It’s not a recession. It’s a robbery” or ("This is not a recession. This is a robbery") is a saying that has been printed on many images. In a recession, business activity slows, but the wealthy are able to buy assets at discounted prices. The saying was popularized at Occupy Wall Street protests in October 2011.

Wikipedia: Occupy Wall Street
Occupy Wall Street (OWS) was a protest movement against economic inequality and the influence of money in politics that began in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City’s Wall Street financial district, in September 2011. It gave rise to the wider Occupy movement in the United States and other countries.
