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...

Oh the wealthy 1% have earned it, they're not lazy or uneducated, they've the best education money can buy and they've rigged the system to favor themselves. They've made sure they're on top and intend to stay that way by controlling the system. It's 'human nature' to screw others apparently.

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.

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'm only at 15 minutes into this documentary from 2011. So far, it's very interesting. If this is a sore spot for anyone, try to be civil to me as well as other's in the comments. Blocking is not a problem otherwise. Thank you. #theonepercent #suescontinuingeducation #money #billionaires

This is not an unbias documentary. The guy clearly has already formed an opinion and is pushing his agenda.

Once the rich and powerful know the truth, they will start sharing the wealth and be a lot more humble. They will if they do not want the opposite and if they want to be fulfilled now and forever. Being rich only last a few years, and it is not that great. The truth and the life last forever and it is as good as it can get all the time. page 88 of the Present WAKE UP. Life is Here & Now. Google Truth Contest and read the Present.

I got one question, how on earth did Milton win anything for economics when the dolt can't understand that wages have not gone up when you factor in inflation?!

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...

World war 2 was started because of the financial inequality, not many know this but that was the main cause of the war. The scales were tipped to far and too many people were too poor while just a few were too rich. Hitler saw this and blamed the jews who were not the real enemy. The real enemy is the greed of mankind, the same thing is happening now and we have to share the wealth now to avoid something far worse than what has happened in the past. The truth of life has been revealed and it can and will turn this world right side up when enough people see it. Google *Truth contest* and check out the top entry. Only the truth can turn this world right side up.

The truth is no one has it any better or any worse than anyone else. Life always eventually balances out, even if it takes life times to do it. The rich if they knew the truth would change their ways because just as they were born into wealth they will be born in to poverty unless they see the truth and work to eradicate the poor. The truth can and will turn this world right side up, the sad part is most wont care enough to check to see what the truth is. Google *Truth contest* and check out the top entry, if the truth and survival mean something to you.
