Banned Talk: Consumers Create Jobs, Not Rich People


This talk tells the truth about how jobs are created, but it was banned from being posted on TED because the rich folks did not like it.

In March, a tech entrepreneur and one of the early investors in Amazon.com named Nick Hanauer gave a TED talk with an idea he thought was worth spreading — that rich people like him should be paying more in taxes because he believes middle-class consumers, not rich people, are the real job creators. (A National Journal cover story deep dives into the economics behind Hanauer’s theories.)

TED Talk curator Chris Anderson refused to post it on TED’s website, igniting a cyber firestorm this week.
