aljazzera video showing an outside perspective to the factors leading up to the greatest wealth disparity since the great depresion.
this wealth disparity stems from the influence of big money on political players and the disconnect between politicians and people.

the interesting thing for me was that at no point was it mentioned that wall street criminality played a role in the wealth disparity, and that political criminality was required to carry out the wealth redistrabution to the top 1%.

it is my humble opinion that tax cuts for the rich do not trickle down through the economy as pretended by bush and regan, it is a fairy tale that is now turning into a nightmare.

when millionairs are calling for higher taxes for themselves to help out the economy yet billionairs are forcing politicians to do their bidding and not tax the extra income to help remove server hardship, well you get social order breakdown.

25 mins run time

the question is not weather a tax on the rich is fair,
its just obvious that a tax on the rich is needed,
why is it just the 99% that suffer for the mistakes of the 1%?
