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 displaced people should be given free housing -- the rich can more than afford it! And stop getting rid of basketball courts and schools!

"...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.

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)

from 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.

Hmm, looks to me like being 'poor' has its perks. Sure I have to clean my own toilets, but at least I have not forgotten the simple joy of looking out my window and enjoying the sunrise over the mountain. Or, climbing up into that mountain to collect wildflowers and medicine plants. I don't have to spend $$ to vacation to appreciate beauty and relax. All they seem obsessed with is money, meetings about money and more money and keeping money. Is that living? Sounds more like a mental prison and unhealthy infatuation.

Find ways to PRODUCE MORE THAN YOU CONSUME and you won't care about people richer than you.

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