It's hard to watch milton friedman talk. People don't realise how much our
society's been hurt by his brand of economics

How do the rich get richer?, simple they fuck over the poor, and the
government helps them with their reverse Robin Hood economic policies ie.
rob the poor and pay the rich.

This Jamie Johnson guy seems to think that giving money away is the
solution to poverty. But giving money away doesn't create jobs. What
creates jobs is CAPITAL INVESTMENT. When the rich invests their money into
more factories and machines. THAT is how to help the poor.

if he really hate his money, I dare him to go without any or connection and
try to make it on his own. ( And it's not one of those experiment where he
get to come home after 2 weeks on the street, but literally sign away his
inheritance and never see his money again. no contact with his rich friends

"...First day of business, some guy who was from Kurdistan, cool country, I
love it..." All the non Americans can now unite with a chuckle.

from Truthdig.com: The U.S. Trust bank just released a poll of Americans
with more than $3 million of invest-able assets.
Nearly three-quarters of those over age 69, and 61 per cent of boomers
(between the ages of 50 and 68), were the first in their generation to
accumulate significant wealth. But the bank found inherited wealth far more
common among rich millennials under age 35.
This is the dynastic form of wealth French economist Thomas Piketty warns
about. It’s been the major source of wealth in Europe for centuries. It’s
about to become the major source in America – unless, that is, we do
something about it.
As income from work has become more concentrated in America, the super rich
have invested in businesses, real estate, art, and other assets. The income
from these assets is now concentrating even faster than income from work.
In 1979, the richest 1 percent of households accounted for 17 percent of
business income. By 2007 they were getting 43 percent. They were also
taking in 75 percent of capital gains. Today, with the stock market
significantly higher than where it was before the crash, the top is raking
even more from their investments.

If you watch this imagine children without the food.
Think of fact that every fifth kid in European Union lives in poverty.

Man reminds me in very small scale what it was like growing up even middle
class in the 90's compared to where we are now..My name is Jamie also >.<
.. Similar constantly half drunk arrogant as phuk dad with his head up his
ass so far that he can't even see through the eyes of another person's
situation.. This "economic recession" i.e. rich grabbing up everything and
outsourcing the labor with their invested capital and accumulating it in an
increasingly small percentage of power elite and seeing the wealth gap
split faster than an atomic reaction has changed my perspective a lot. 5
mins in and I can tell I'm gona love this.

Great video Jammie. I allways thought that the super rich are bad people
but from what I can see I have never seen more calm, relaxed, polite and
gentle people as your family and friends are. Hoping one day to be one of
