Available in its entirety on YouTube, Nick Hanauer's 6-minute TED talk has proven controversial because TED doesn't want to post it. While some call it "political," it may simply be a clear, concise refutation of the idea that the "rich" are "job creators" that ought not be taxes. It's particularly poignant when you see where middle-class salaries have gone over the last 30 years of our Great Trickle-down Experiment, and where effective tax rates are.
So true. This is why critical and analytical thinking are so important to citizens in a democracy. The rich have the power to shape perception through media and education (and the church). A truly free society is a thinking society.
What is "TED"?
