When ‘They’ Say Cutting Taxes On The Rich Means Job Creation, They’re Lying. Just Ask This Rich Guy.
Meet Nick Hanauer. He’s a very wealthy man, his family owns a lot of things, and he’s invested in some big companies that started out small (ahem ... Amazon...). He’s got a few things to say about who the job creators really are in our country, and it goes totally against the standard trope you usually hear from politicians and talking heads. Delightfully so.
This is a clip from the Robert Reich film "Inequality for All." You can see or order the whole film here. It's also available to watch instantly on Amazon, or you can get the DVD from Netflix. It is truly worth your time to see the whole movie — I promise! Fact-checks by Robert Reich's very capable crew. More from Nick Hanauer in this wonderful TED talk and this interesting little graphic.
