Not everyone in the "1 %" is a "trader" on "wall street" . I laugh at the idea that Lebron and Oprah Winfrey are examples of people who "deserve" their earnings. How about construction foremen who worked hard, and hired more and more people as they got bigger and better jobs and built a large company that brings in a couple million dollars a year and provides jobs to several people. Should the owner of that business really pay 35%, while the bottom feeding 47% of the nation pay nothing at all and often get refunds much in excess of anything they have given. There are some issues on Wall Street, and the problem does lie with the government being able to influence law by sponsoring bills that the genital stroking lobbyists from these companies hire. Giving more power to the government so that they will stop :"Wall Street Cronies" is like giving money to the liquor store owners so that they will eradicate alcoholism.

This man on this video is very ignorant. He does not know anything about finance. Traders don't invest or collect dividend, they trade stocks, options, currency in short term period not in long term period. The government bail out the big banks not traders. Traders have no power what government wants to do or the CEOs of banks. I could go on and on, but it is waste of my time.

The main problem is the entitlement mentality of the lower/middle classes. What gives them the right to take money from the rich? The rich shouldn't be punished due to their success. Redistribution of wealth completely contradicts the theory of capitalism, which our country was founded on.

the top 1% is actually those who inherited money through family aka the wasps. lebron, bill gates, etc are the lower upper class. not the 1%

@burgrman - If a trader doesn't make $380k/year then he's not part of the 1%. That would make him part of the top 5% or so if he makes less than that amount. "They don't all make money every time they step into the way most folks do" Yes, but usually they have more savings than the average folk. That phrase "paycheck-to-paycheck" really does describe most Americans pretty well because if the average non-rich person got laid off they wouldn't have enough savings to last more than a few months.

end up homeless if they are laid off or if the business fails. Most of the time the guys at the top can walk away still having a nice nest egg if the company goes under. The people on the bottom are the ones who will be poor or homeless a few months after the job ends if they don't find another one and are usually the ones to take most of the blame if things don't work out with projects. "Employees are one part in the machine" Yes, the most important part. Without them there is no company.

@A86 I'm not a trader but I have worked on trading floors and I can tell you have a Hollywood-type of image about traders. He says that the 1% makes ~$380,000 or more. Some traders don't even make 380k. Some lose their money more than make it some years because of risks. They don't all make money every time they step into the way most folks do. I know I am salaried and I am guaranteed a check as long as I'm employed. Take that into account when you speak of how overpaid a trader is.
