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.

  1. Ja, grozno je. Ta film je izšel leta 2006, torej je bil posnet nekje v letu 2005/2006, pred 10 leti. Ves šit, ki ga prikazuje, vse razlike, so zdaj še večje. Včasih sem prav vesel, da ne živim tam, razen, če bi bil rojen med top 10% po dohodkovni lestvici. Dokumentarec prikazuje, da sistem ni deloval, tudi takrat, ko je navidez deloval. Edina pozitivna stvar je to, da so prikazane absurdnosti v tem času postale že obče znane in so včasih celo tema prime time oddaj, ne pa zgolj neodvisnih dokumentarcev.
