The Rich Are Not the Job Creators: Nick Hanauer’s TED Talk

Nick Hanauer, self described “super-rich” entrepreneur, gave a fantastic TED Talk about how the middle class—not the super-rich—are the real job creators. But TED, which has released over 100 different political videos in the past, thought this one was too partisan and refused to release it. We normally love TED, and were surprised they didn’t think this talk was TEDworthy. 

Under pressure from the Internet, TED finally relented and released the video. Watch it and decide for yourself if it’s really all that controversial to say that the “super-rich are not job creators.” Then share it like crazy.
