(NEWSER) – When you think Occupy Wall Street, do you think "financial products"? Because the Occupy Money Cooperative would like you to do just that. Two weeks ago it began raising money to fund its operations (it'll function like a bank) and announced its first product: a prepaid Occupy debit card, the New York Times reports. The card can represent "a protest with every purchase," the group proclaims, promising that it will "directly tackle the concerns of the unbanked and underbanked." The card will have a transparent fee structure, charging $1.95 per ATM withdrawal and 99 cents per balance inquiry.
