The one percent
A documentary on wealth and issues of racial class in America.
I don't agree with the above description from the catalog that "racial class" should be a main point of the description. This documentary covers a wide range of social levels in America.
Released in 2007 but very pertinent today. Offering great insight to families of wealth where most of the money was inherited. However some made their money by hard work, the man who started Kinko’s is very candid and probably one of the most honest people in the film. You can't help but like him, his honesty and appreciate the work he has done. If you want to know some of what goes on at this level of American society this is a good place to start. Thank you Jamie Johnson, grandson of Johnson and Johnson’s founder, for your brevity and tenacity. There is a very interesting side contrast with Bill Gates Sr. leading the way. This documentary is really worth a look. ~Mike
