The One Percent



El video:

This 80-minute documentary focuses on the growing "wealth gap" in America, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker Jamie Johnson, a 27-year-old heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical fortune. Johnson, who cut his film teeth at NYU and made the Emmy®-nominated 2003 HBO documentary Born Rich, here sets his sights on exploring the political, moral and emotional rationale that enables a tiny percentage of Americans - the one percent - to control nearly half the wealth of the entire United States. The film Includes interviews with Nicole Buffett, Bill Gates Sr., Adnan Khashoggi, Milton Friedman, Robert Reich, Ralph Nader and other luminaries. http://www.theonepercentdocume...

The amount of self-righteous and hypocritical bullshit in the comment section is insane. Everyone is fucking Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King all of a sudden, preaching for and protecting the poor. If you feel so concerned for the children in Africa, stop watching videos of wealthy people on the internet, buy a shovel, book a flight, and go help dig a water well. Most, and I say MOST billionaires earned their wealth -- with hard work and creativity. You're saying people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and the the Google brothers didn't contribute to this world? Sorry, someone who owns a company who constantly makes technological breakthroughs and has helped shape modern society is going to be worth a little more than a janitor. Easy to say greed is bad when you're a worthless chump. Easy to say helping is good when you can't help. Typical...

Poor Mr Milton Friedman. Poor me too for being poor! It seems insurmontable to create economic equailty when we are all so brainwashed and condtioned from early age to think there is only one way to do something,

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.

The rich make money from a system that is inherently corrupt, their wealth is made off of the robbery and exploiting of the poor, period !!!! If the rich obeyed the "Bible they would abolish capitalism, mammon breeding mammon. MARK 10:17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. ACTS 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. ACTS 4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

The haves vs the have-nots. Extremely well-documented by none other than a young heir himself of the Jonson & Jonson giant. Admire his detached & honest take on the growing wealth gap. I look through the eyes of my ancestors & I see that they lived a far more wholesome life even on an income less than the average person earns today.I love Economics, but this...... Most American working class people are just one pay-check away from being homeless which is why Indians make it a point to save a certain percentage of their earnings.That is their social security. Great,compelling watch.

I see it like this. 10% across the board tax for everyone. From the Homeless to the richest man. 10% should be enough for everything. If it is not, then we need to cut enough so that it will be enough. I don't believe in Govt subsities. Let private sector do all the research. The reason they can't is because of the current structure of Gov't. I am happy go lucky. If was a millionaire,I would be the same and dress the same and act the same. You don't take money with you to the next life. I think with money comes more worries.

Seek for riches to help others. Saving a child from starvation so much more worth it compared to driving a Ferrari that loses value.

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.

I am shocked about the fact that there is STILL so many Americans who advocate Fridmans economic system despite the fact that you can see it is tearing apart your country! You don't have to be a brilliant mind to be able to see that no country in the world can maintain on the long run with a 99 to 1 wealth distribution. End of story!
