All have sinned and greatly offended the Holy God of the Bible. The just
punishment is death then Hell. That's not God's will. He loved you so much
that He became a man in the person of Jesus Christ and suffered and died on
the cross paying for the law guilty sinners like you and I broke in His
life's blood. Now He can legally dismiss your case. You must repent turn
from your sin and trust alone in the finished work of Jesus Christ for your

Very interesting points . Jamie Johnson did expose Nobel prize
winner Milton Friedman's simplistic view on the whole equality between Rich
and poor. I applaud Mr. Johnson for his efforts to shed some light on the
issue and he , I believe to a certain extent do just that. Not enough is
being questioned , we all have a part to play in how we treat one another
and all societies as a whole

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.

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

12:25 "Nothing wrong with Nepotism". Well, I can think of a few things that
a fking terrible about Nepotism.
I mean, understandably, you want to give what you have to your children.
But when it comes to running a corporation, you need need to EARN that. Or
else its just like returning to feudalism.

When 40% of Americans share 1% of the benefits of capitalism, something's
got to change. Yeah, that's the 'other' 1%.

Classical (Austrian) Economics basically proves that "dog eat dog", or
laissez faire capitalism does maximize production and will always strive
for Full Employment. Problem is that "Full Employment" is never attained
and the "dogs" that are eaten must still be provided for as full members of
society. The bottom 40% of Americans are mired in an impoverished state,
even if not in official Poverty. The net worth of the bottom 40% of
Americans is less than 1% of total pie. Since we live in a Nation of One
Man, One Vote and loudly proclaim our 'Equality' the laissez faire model
poorly serves the vast majority. Since Socialism is even worse, what are
we supposed to do? If I had the Answer that all agreed with I could be
King but no one seems to have any answer that will please the Corporate
Owners of our current society...

Dear Jamie Johnson, You should have listened to your financial adviser &
should have done more work. Milton Friedman is clearly wrong in stating
that the income of the poor has risen since the 70's. Considering the
purchasing power of the dollar, which has depreciated some 98% since 1913,
the income level of the poor has not risen. This is poorly done & you
should have investigated the facts more before filming this.
