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...

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.

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,

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 either)

"...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 you!
