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 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.

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.

To Jamie Johnson: I would have loved to email you, but couldn't find reliable contact info. I saw your Born Rich documentary.. and it was very good.. We could get an understanding of being super rich.. and could raise real critical questions for example if I were to date a super rich girl and she would demand a prenup.. I might ask "What do you think about the idea that because of your upbringing and your need for a prenup that you may be blinded to know the true meaning of love? That any relationship you will enter will be at least somewhat a business relationship?" She might say "You're right. I will love as much as I can. And I need to find a guy who is ok with that." But this documentary? I'm sorry.. but it fails.. You set out with a belief and only tried to confirm that belief.. This was not an example of good journalism.. It was 80 minutes of showing conformational bias.. Born Rich was simply showing us something.. so it worked.. The 1% tried to do more.. establish a cause and effect (if you are poor.. you will stay poor) or establish a moral law (the rich have an obligation to help the poor).. But in order to establish these things beyond reasonable doubt in a nation where news agencies can continuously manufacture doubt.. it's quite the formidable task.. Years of research and interviews and etc.. You should have asked.. "Why is there wealth inequality?" or "How did wealth inequality happen?" or "What are the consequences of having too much wealth inequality?" For example.. there has shown to be a very strong correlation (about 0.90) between wealth inequality and political polarizability.. meaning that the more wealth inequality a nation has.. the more polarized politics in that nation will become.. implying a general political instability.. which should be easy to illustrate if such a strong correlation holds (government shutdown perhaps).. I'm not sure how many voices I will reach with a YouTube comment.. But you can have a very powerful voice that can reach millions.. Your effort could have been really important information to convey to millions of people to help them gain a deeper understanding just as in the Born Rich film.. You had quite the impressive list of people to interview.. people who we simply may never have the chance to interview.. Milton Friedman? Despite our beliefs.. he still is a professor of economics with a lot of wisdom about the economy.. The questions you asked him were sloppy.. questions he's heard countless times.. so he was more than ready to answer.. dismiss you.. and place doubt whether you have any idea what economics is.. I think he sensed that and that's why he asked you if you had studied his work.. so what kind of question could you ask Friedman? Maybe.. "after the financial crisis Alan Greenspan was on record saying that he made a mistake about how he handled the economy noting that there was something about human behavior that he didn't quite understand that might have led to the crisis.. how do your theories account for human behaviors such as greed? The trickle down economy can clearly work at times yes.. but is it logically possible.. can we imagine at least one scenario that would allow the rich to become richer while the poor stay poor under the guise of a trickle down economy model? For example.. suppose that we do account for greed or the fear of protecting our wealth into the economic model.. how would that alter your theory of economics? What about the political instability that seems to come with wealth inequality? If it is not moral to distribute wealth perfectly.. should it not be moral to accumulate wealth to one person? If we can't distribute wealth.. how can we prevent excessive accumulation of wealth? How can the concept of quantitative easing help or hurt the economy?" It seems this film is a little premature.. we can get that sense when you genuinely ask your family "Why?" as if you honestly don't know when they say "You have no idea what damage you are doing" granted they don't do a good job explaining how or why damage would occur.. But.. suppose you made a film called The Bottom 20%.. everyone is focused on the Top 1%.. what about the opposite? People like Mark Horvath and others who work extensively with the poorest of the poor can easily paint a picture of the bottom.. with a picture of the top (Born Rich) and the picture of the bottom.. then perhaps we might be able to understand the relationship BETWEEN the two classes with another film.. eventually culminating into a film that shows how to attain a healthy wealth inequality.. incentive for all.. the poor not too 3rd world poor.. a strong healthy middle class.. a sizable rich population.. rather than rushing to shout the predictable "this inequality is wrong!" when all it does is create rich enemies that can sue you or blacklist you.. while it makes the 99% to dislike and or not trust the rich even more.. then how would anything get solved when both sides mistrust and dislike one another? A bloody revolution and overthrow? Maybe that's too extreme.. first maybe even more political bickering and polarized arguments.. more shutting down of government.. maybe there wouldn't be real bloodshed.. maybe the war would be fought on voting day when one side takes control to change things until the other side takes back control to undo everything.. on the floor of Congress where everything is a stalemate.. I only tell you these things because it seems that you might be receptive to criticism and you seem like you do genuinely care.. And it would be wonderful if you became a timeless documentarian rather than a predictable "we'll forget this film next year" maker.. I hope the best for you..!

If I were the %1..I would start getting worried about the %0.01 Jews at the top..who have now started sucking the blood of even the very very rich...we are soon going to end up with 0.01 % Jews who own everything...a struggling middle class and lots of poor. Friedman the ugly Jew midget is well and truly one of many people they use... pushing forward this Jewish agenda.

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.

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)
