BREAKING: You Know That TED Talk You Weren't Supposed To See? Here It Is.

Presented in partnership with 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.

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.
