|Meet The 1%||10.18.11|
A rebellious scion of the wealthiest 1% of the US documents what he sees.
Jamie Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune made a documentary in 2006... and it's really engaging and well-done. The first of eight YouTubes of it is above and that one will allow you to find the other seven. These people Jamie talks with don't want to sound crass but they sure like that whole trickle-down theory they get their bought-and-paid-for shills like Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor to regurgitate for them.
It's worth watching this film, especially in light of the beginnings of an uprising against the dominance 1% that we're seeing today at the heart of the OccupyWallStreet movement. After he first did the film, the Wall Street Journal called Jamie The Rich Man's Michael Moore.
