CEO Nick Hanauer: “If lower taxes for the rich led to job creation, we would be drowning in jobs”

By now you’ve read or heard that TED censored CEO Nick Hanauer’s speech on Income Inequality and the differences in taxation, so by all means, if you haven’t seen it, do so now. Hanauer is a capitalist, whose experience is vast, having been one of the first investors with Amazon.com. When someone speaks the truth while having the wisdom and audacity to call out the Reagan-initiated ‘trickle down’ economics, stating that the wealthy don’t actually create jobs and that the middle class do, it’s a rude awakening for the Status quo — and obviously worthy of censorship to them.

Watch and listen to the words they don’t want you to hear:

    I agree with him 100%.

    I also think that his presentation was flat and not up to TED standards. It just wasn’t that great of a presentation.
