No. 1: Consumer revolution


Thanks largely to social media, Occupy Wall Street has become a global movement.


Twitter, Facebook and sites like Change.org work in conjunction, allowing local, national and global communities to form, organize and apply pressure en masse to achieve a common goal.


When Bank of America first announced plans to charge monthly debit card fees, a 22 year-old nanny started a petition to shame the bank for accepting taxpayer bailout funds and then gouging their customers. Bank of America backed down after 300,000 people signed her petition.


Critics say that the 40,000 people who joined credit unions on "Bank Transfer Day" (Nov. 5) was minimal, but 2012 will bring more reminders to banks and other corporations that they answer to more than investment banks, shareholders and special interests -- they answer to their customers.
