Born Rich and The One Percent. 

Since the 2008 crisis you hear a lot about the ‘One percent’ that has it all. Well let me tell you, after seeing the 2003 Emmy®-nominated HBO documentary ‘Born Rich’ and the doc. ‘One Percent’ (2006) you will have a completely different look on it all. How it is really like growing up in the most wealthiest families in the US? Both documentaries focus on the growing wealth gap in America, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker Jamie Johnson, a 33-year-old heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical fortune. Jamie will provide you with an interesting look on the other side of the spectrum revisiting the case that wealth does not necessarily bring happiness. Jamie 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 Georgina Bloomberg, Luke Well, Ivanka TrumpNicole Buffett, Bill Gates Sr., Adnan Khashoggi, Milton Friedman, Robert Reich, Ralph Nader and other luminaries. Watch both docs. online. Born Rich here, The One Percent here. Enjoy!  A-Both-to-Watch!
