Here is the trailer for it..

it was actually made by one of them(elite) Jamie Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune.

and here is what wikipedia says about it..

The One Percent is a 2006 documentary about the growing wealth gap between America's wealthy elite and the citizenry on the whole. It was created by Jamie Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, and produced by Jamie Johnson and Nick Kurzon. The film's title refers to the top one percent of Americans in terms of wealth, who controlled 38% of the nation's wealth in 2001

This is a really good movie to see to understand just how the 1% rule us all..

In this hard-hitting but humorous documentary, director Jamie Johnson takes the exploration of wealth that he began in Born Rich one step further. The One Percent, refers to the tiny percentage of Americans who control nearly half the wealth of the U.S. Johnson's thesis is that this wealth in the hands of so few people is a danger to our very way of life. Johnson captures his story through personal interviews with Robert Reich, Adnan Khashoggi, Bill Gates Sr., and Steve Forbes, during which both Johnson's and his subjects' knowledge and humor shine. And he's not afraid to butt heads with Milton Friedman, the economist who coined the term "the trickledown effect." He also shows how the other half lives, using real-world examples of the wealth gap: he takes a tour of a dilapidated housing project in Chicago, rides around with an enlightened taxi driver, and sees the human toll of the unfair economics of the Florida sugar industry

Here is an interactive homepage for this movie..

I thought some of you might be interested in this....

Jamie Johnson isn't that rich...... in the film clip he still has to ladel out his own soup....

A film to re-inforce the 'it's not fair brigade' as they complain whilst eating their Big Macs, buying their Nike & Converse and playing games on their i-phone 4's......whilst listening to some overpaid Rapper / musician and watching some overpaid sports star.......

Only stating the obvious !!
