The One Percent

This 80-minute documentary focuses on the growing "wealth gap" in America, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker Jamie Johnson, a 27-year-old heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical fortune. Johnson, who cut his film teeth at NYU and made the Emmy®-nominated 2003 HBO documentary Born Rich, here sets his sights on exploring the political, moral and emotional rationale that enables a tiny percentage of Americans - the one percent - to control nearly half the wealth of the entire United States. The film Includes interviews with Nicole Buffett, Bill Gates Sr., Adnan Khashoggi, Milton Friedman, Robert Reich, Ralph Nader and other luminaries.

    There IS a solution, one that the rich will NOT like. It is called a resource based economy (RBE) INSTEAD of a profit based one. Look at this site –
    I feel certain that the rich are aware of the crash of capitalism which will occur soon. The banks and governments will crash, much more than a few years ago. People will NOT have access to any money, even their own. There will be world wide stealing and violence. Hopefully enough people will hear about the RBE idea and will cause the revolution and do away with money entirely. EVERYONE, rich AND poor, will be provided with all the food, excellent homes, free travel, free higher education, Imagine all the poor of the world now able to HELP solving the problems that arise. Imagine all the qualified people working on the problems instead of creating weapons. `
