The Occupy Wall Street protest is still growing, and it's caught on in other cities across the country. Meanwhile, last week in Alabama the strictest anti-immigration bill in the country was again challenged by the Department of Justice. California passed a state Dream Act — the most lenient immigration bill legislation in the country. And, corporations will begin announcing their quarterly earnings results this week, which may briefly distract investors from the still-faltering European economy. Plus, The Washington Post and Bloomberg News are sponsoring a Republican debate on Tuesday night.

Charlie Herman, economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC Radio, and Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with Creators Syndicate, look ahead at all the big stories in the news this week.
