I don't think they can come up with answers as they have not yet identified these problems as systemic and they are obviously further to an extent than reformists or they wouldn't be doing this. They're stuck.This is little more than a lengthy angry rant. "One demand" turns out to be eleven highly diverse demands. There is no focus. There are no attempts at solutions e.g., for "ending joblessness." What policies do they seek to do so? They offer no answers right now.
"I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."
What are the odds on when things start getting broke? Wall Street needs protested but the list of demands is incredibly lame. As I note, it's a list one would expect to see from a bunch of spoiled rich kids.

I’m 25. I’m one of those over-educated, under-employed youths that you often hear about. I work under a precarious position as a freelancer – I’m a freelance filmmaker – and I’m representative of a lot of people here in a way, because it is a predominantly young crowd, a crowd that sees their future as being sold out and the United States is definitely not the land of the free, not the land of opportunity. We have incredible stratification of wealth here. Actually, if you look at the Gini coefficient wealth we have a greater stratification of wealth than Egypt did under Mubarak. The class struggle here is the class struggle everywhere.

Protest will hit Wall Street: Voice of Russia
So they want to end war, enforce liberal values, and they think protesting Wall Street will accomplish this?
They don't seem to be unified, their desires are not things that Wall Street can fulfill (like ending wars, hunger, capital punishment, etc). I also don't think the media is ignoring them because they believe this movement of people far left of the political spectrum will launch into a national revolution. The Tea Party was heavily covered, and most of the networks covered them in order to attack the Tea Party, not to promote it. I think these protests aren't covered because they aren't really mainstream newsworthy.
