Nick Hanauer:给富人减税不能增加工作职位

http://crofsblogs.typepad.com/gap/2012/05/nick-hanauer-on-job-creation-and-inequality.html 关于企业资本创造工作职位的迷思

lihlii @lihlii 2012-11-28 08:03:28 UTC
@lihlii 所谓资本家创造就业机会的极端右派说辞,和当初马克思主义说工人创造商品的剩余价值的劳动价值论的极端左派说辞一样,都是违背经济学原理的扯淡。真正的商 品价值和工作职位的创造来源是市场。只有市场交易的完成和繁荣,才是工作职位和商品价值实现的根本。

lihlii @lihlii 2012-11-28 08:14:10 UTC
http://youtu.be/N1b_Q1lprAk TED Talk 甚至取消了 Nick Hanauer 关于给富人减税不能增加工作职位的演说录像的发布,可见资本家对舆论的钳制有多严重。

lihlii @lihlii 2012-11-28 08:15:40 UTC
@lihlii 更重要的是,主张给富人加税的巴菲特,驳斥给富人减税增加工作职位的 Nick Hanauer 本人都是富人,资本家。他们的言论说服力更强,因为他们不是屁股决定脑袋,不是为自己的利益说话,相反是损害自己利益而说真话。

Banned TED Talk

Published on May 17, 2012

Via Business Insider: "As the war over income inequality wages on, super-rich Seattle entrepreneur Nick Hanauer has been raising the hackles of his fellow 1-percenters, espousing the contrarian argument that rich people don't actually create jobs.

The position is controversial — so much so that TED is refusing to post a talk that Hanauer gave on the subject. National Journal reports today that TED officials decided not to put Hanauer's March 1 speech up online after deeming his remarks "too politically controversial" for the site...".* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss on The Young Turks.

    ted has had billy graham and richard dawkins as speakers. You aren't going to get ideas more polarizing and charged than those. TED's excuse that it would be too politically charged was lame. The purpose of the talks is to share ideas.

    They banned him because they try to be inclusive of all ideas. When you say a wealthy most likely democrat man gave a speech on wealth inequality, he most likely approached this problem from liberal standpoint. The simple fact is by only looking at this problem though the platform of a single political party and not through many different and varied ideas is grounds for removal and disregard. These talks are more to unite the ideas of all and not advertise a certain ideology.

    Yes because his ideas were exclusive. Just like the system of law there needs to be rules to protect others opinions and ideas. When you start excluding other ideas by only looking at a problem through one scope you essentially trampling on and furthered discussion on the topic.

    I'm sure you might be a lovely, intelligent person, but this comment makes me wonder how you can walk upright with all that stupid weighing your head down.

    All perspectives are exclusive. Even the espousal of total inclusion is an exclusive idea because it EXCLUDES EXCLUSION. Any time you adopt any point of view as correct, you label conflicting ideas as incorrect.

    Yes i agree that inclusion it 'technically' exclusion, but standing up on a stage and damning the actions of groups in individuals whether they be conservative or liberal is a bit beyond what should be accepted. No where can a discussion go involving politics. It is the reasons that cause the problem for that need to be addressed.

    If the actions of a group of individuals is criminally deceptive, then they can be damned on whatever stage the one who damns sees fit. There is no reason not to accept a statement if it can be backed by facts.

    Like I said, this isn't an issue of political standpoint. It's an issue of an idea being pushed by a group of individuals that has historically proven to be objectively untrue, and an oversimplified and inaccurate claiming of credit that can be shown through simple logic to be wrong.

    Defaming would be me getting on a TED talk stage, showing our argument, and saying "how can this fuckwit not see the issues with his argument?"

    Hanauer demonstrated a stark historical contradiction to claims which conservatives are on record as saying. In other words, he is dealing in facts, not opinions; the truth doesn't lean Left or Right. And the forum is adequate because this isn't some personal squabble; it's an important aspect of economic policy, which affects all of us.

    I appreciate your apology, someone who could debate an issue quite eloquently surprised me with such a word. But anyway, regardless of if his words had any truth, the way he went about trying put forth his message was wrong. In stead of listing the misgivings of people who did not have foresight for such misgivings he should have listed practical ways in which to solve the problem. I am well aware of the turmoil that plagues the world. One really needs to just focus on fixing the problem though.
    · in reply to Kalilden(Show the comment)
    Kalilden

    Kalilden 6 hours ago

    In order to implement a solution, one must first identify the problem. Not everyone is aware of these turmoils, and many of those who ARE aware don't know the nature or extent of the root causes, of which corporate greed is indisputably one. The line that captains of industry and CEOs are "Job Creators" and should thus be specially rewarded is a documented lie that helps facilitate that greed's manifestation, which needs to be exposed on whatever stage is available.

    Further, the only way the talk was from a 'liberal standpoint' was that it tore down a factual inaccuracy that is and has been promoted by prominent conservative Republicans. This isn't an issue of a party line; have you actually watched the talk? You can now. The historical facts he presents are pretty damning of the "coddle Job Creators" ideal.

    So yes.

    Your comments make no goddamn sense.

    What I base my assertion of this entire problem is on the report of these web journalists. They presented said facts and then I responded to how I felt about it from a non-bias perspective. The fact is the TED conference and others like it such as RSA are meant to bring people together with reasonings that are based on MATH, SCIENCE, LANGUAGE, things that are finite to solve a problem. I feel as if though when you bring politics into somewhere it doesn't belong then there's a major problem.

    The loss of jobs over the last 30-something years was not the result of tax cuts, welfare spending or other errant congressional policy...it was and IS the integration of over 2 BILLION newly employable workers in emerging economies. Only shrew protectionist policies cold have hoped to slow the inevitable. By the way, U.S. and European protectionist policies in the first half of the 20th century exacerbated the lead up to WWI and WWII. Remember that.

    What Nick Hanauer fails to tell you in this TED talk is that he, himself, is directly responsible for creating over 51,000 jobs because of his investment in Amazon.com, and indirectly likely responsible for over 100,000 more jobs created because of Amazon.com. We should be thanking people like Nick for the risk he took with his money that created all of these jobs, not villainizing them for it.

    What he says is that the jobs are also created because there's demand for the product or service they're providing, so you can say that consumers also have a part in creating jobs.

    So, should we give tax cuts to the consumers too?

    Or instead, should we stop giving tax cuts to rich people?

    We're not telling them that is wrong that they're rich. We're asking them to pay their share, just like everybody else.

    I'm not against wealthy people. I'm against too much greed that would sacrifice men. The PILLAR of democracy and civilization is the MIDDLE CLASS. Without a strong middle class you can't have a healthy democracy or even a healthy nation, economically and politically.

    Today is no longer about hardwork and determination, too much now depends on what kind of privilege you're born into. DO NOT squeeze the middle class. Certainly the ones needing protection are the middle class not the very wealthy.

Atm they are trying shamelessly to put one of them the one percenter as a presidential candidate and trying again to deceive the rest into believing what is good for the top 1 percenter is good for the whole society.

    There's nothing wrong with being very rich but being very rich at the expense of the rest of the society now that's wrong. The surest way to empower yourself is by empowering the people around you. Likewise the surest way to be wealthy is by making other people wealthy too. Greed may motivate people and that's good but too much greed INCAPACITATES and RUIN other people and that's bad for the society and nation.

    It is funny because many TED talks have talked about the abject poverty and wealth disparity in Third world nations, but heaven for bid we should talk about it here. It is like all of the charitable events to feed the starving in the third world, but suggest feeding Americans, having government funded jobs programs, or having social protections and "OH NO! They are lazy, good for nothing welfare cheats!" The thinking in the US is warped.

    Those tax cuts did not create jobs, they created a very small elite class of people with the entitlement to royalty, to keep their place, their jobs, their bonuses, their raises now matter what they do and the right to keep everyone else down by impoverising the public space - in fact their goal is to rid the world or anything public.

LOL all your want, who cares?Before Reagan the US was fiscally responsible, then Republicans decided for some reason to drive the economy off the cliff, but those with lots of money are in a substantially different place than the average American. Tax cuts have not created jobs and have hobbled the government from being able to do its job.

    Your first sentence is an assumption. Your second sentence is clearly partisan, and I have no care for partisan politics, or politics of any kind really. I could give a fuck what sociopath did the spending. Now, as a matter of fact, you're wrong in your second claim, as gov't spending has continually risen since at least 1913.

    And lastly, you can't prove tax cuts didn't create jobs because you have no parallel universe in which you could observe the same chain of events absent the tax cuts. There are billions of variables that determine job growth, and yet you ignore that you can't control for them. And trust me, the gov't is by no means short of revenue. For you to imply otherwise would be ridiculous. Just look at gov't revenues over time.

    Yes I can prove that tax cuts did not lead to jobs, because the tax cuts for the last twelve years have just put money in the hands of the very wealthy who invest it offshore. Jobs are not being created here. There are not "billions" of variables that determine job growth, there several "first-order" things to look at, but you have no idea what that means no doubt. Anyway you are about as non-serious as they come so this is a waste of time.

    It wasn't that his talk was political, it was that it was logically bankrupt...his claim was that consumers are the job creators, because without consumers to buy products then businesses would not be able to service them and thus consumers drive the economy. What he failed to recognize is, where exactly do consumers get their money from? They must be productive enough to obtain money to buy products/services, and they must either create their own jobs or get their jobs from an evil capitalist..

    Well, what money will "job creators" make when there is no jobs=consumers to buy their products or services. The trickle down economy is just as logically bankrupt, isn't it?

    To my (naive) understanding it seems that you need both, because neither side can live without the other.

    Check out the Wikipedia or NYT articles on "Kurzarbeit" for an example how you can "create consumption" even during economic downturns: people don't lose their jobs, they only lose 10% for their income (temporarily).

    Producers will sell their product to other producers, who have accumulated wealth from their own production- you don't need to tax the production of a producer in order to give his wealth to a consumer, for that consumer to buy the producers production- is that a serious question? Read "How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes" by Peter Schiff to wash that Keynesian propaganda out of your head.

    After Google-ing, Hanauer's numbers seem accurate. Unemployment increased from 1995 to 2009 while taxes for the wealthy decreased during the same period. The reason Republicans gave for decreasing taxes for the wealthy was job creation. Concluding, based on these numbers, that decreasing taxes for the wealthy does not necessarily create jobs seems reasonable to me.

Oh yeah, another thing I can just think of off the top of my head - taxes didn't decrease from 1995 - 2009. "Huh? Really?" No. "Well then, what happened?". First off, in 1993 Clinton increased taxes.

    Most of those increases remained in place until 1997. Conditions for the economy were ideal in the early '90s following the fall of "the wall". Growth continued despite the increase in taxes, but it was slow. After the '97 tax cuts though, the economy boomed, producing the "surplus" of the late '90s. However, even the '97 tax cuts didn't cut taxes all the way around. Constantly since the end of George H.W. Bush there have been numerous fees and "hidden taxes" inserted into the economy.

All constantly being increased every single year. Do you know how often these things get eliminated? Almost never. You get taxed if you die and attempt to leave your wealth to your family.

    Yet, one can look at over 100 years of economic history in the U.S. and see one clear repetitive truth. Every time taxes are significantly decreased, they're followed by ecnonomic growth. Which DID happen when the Bush tax cuts were put in place. Around 2000 the economy took another dip. The "Bush Tax Cuts" were more a response to that dip as much as they were an adherence to ideological notions of "lower taxes are good for everybody".

    And even though there were definite decreases to taxes, the "tax cuts" weren't permanent and have to be approved again and again for them to remain in place, otherwise the tax rate reverts to the higher level it was during Clinton's Administration. Lastly, just use some common sense. Did the total number of private sector jobs increase from 1995 to 2008? Yes. If all the businesses owned by wealthy people disappeared with the wealthy business owners, would jobs disappear with them? Yes.

    Has Hanauer ever owned or run a business for a significant amount of time in his life, relying on said business for his sole source of income? No. Are there people in this country who technically earn over $1,000,000 a year because they own a business and the gross income of the business shows up as the sole proprietor's income that actually take a loss for the year? Yes. Because those people have to pay a whole slew of costs, fees, and taxes before they get their cut.

    a circulating money supply is finite. hoarding money that was created by someone borrowing it into existence, directly causes foreclosers and bankruptcy because the money that was hoarded and removed from circulation, was needed to be spent back into circulation so those original debts can be extinguished.

    because those debts go unpaid, the people in debt, make more loans at higher interest to make up for the hoarded debt-money. This action directly inflated the economy at large.

    Yes, it is VERY fair for people that have little to no money to not pay taxes. It is called common decency. And it means jack shit that you say you grew up poor. First, I have no reason to believe you. People commonly make bullshit claims in order to appear to have an especially enlightened view. Second, it is irrelevant to you being a greedy, unsympathetic, irrational dink, dawg. And speaking about supposed crack heads' supposed views is laughably stupid. Not being "kids" isn't pertinent.

I don't like rich people that are assholes, and I also don't like people with moderate wealth and those that are poor if they are assholes. And we already have a progressive tax system, which means the amount/rate of tax one pays is partially determined by their level of income. And some people's income is nothing because they earn very little. They CAN'T "afford it."

    Actually, Einstein, it depends on what the definition of "poor" is. There are many people that pay no income taxes due to a low level of income. That is factual. What the threshold of what constitutes "poor" is claimed to actually be, by function, determines whether a particular "poor" person pays any income taxes. If you consider a person that makes 50k to be "poor," then he/she is "poor and does pay taxes." That doesn't change the fact that many people earn so little that they don't pay any.

    Cenk, you lack the intellectual background to comprehend what historical graph can shows, and what they cannot.

    The graph shows historical statistics that cannot show whether employment would have been worse without those tax cuts, or has increased because of those tax cuts.

    Say "it's a fact" how many times you like, it simply isn't a fact, and historical statistics (especially on a 10 year period) can't prove or disprove a causal theory it either way.

And Romney gained his wealth from rescuing failing companies because he is a business man. You are just too dumb to admit that Cenk, like Romney, is in the 1% and Cenk has no intention of paying more of his own money on taxes - just trying to convince idiots like you to pay more.

    Several Youtubers have posted the TED talk given by Nick Hanaurer - it was great - well articulated. I find it hard to believe TED would cower from Hanaurer's talk but I guess they did.

    I certainly don't hold TED in the esteem I did before this censure.

    The speech was excellent. Watch it for yourself. Anyone who calls it controversial is coming from a very distorted world view. The logic is simple and unassailable. And from the video it appears to have received an incredibly strong response. Watch for yourself.

    At 0:50 she said "... wasn't able to attend will have the ability to watch...". English is not my mother tongue, but I take it that "ability to watch" means, having the aptitude, capacity to watch, basically "have the eyes". That's hardly worth saying ;-). What she meant is clear from the context: "possibility/opportunity to watch". Sure, everyone's tongue can slip, but she made the same error on at least two occasions in this video... I find it a bit funny. That, and your reaction as well ;-).

    And I think that the fact English is not your mother tongue is the reason that you are humored by this. Ability and opportunity are like can and may. They are misused a lot by modern English, and a grammatical insider (like myself) understands and embraces that. No offense to anyone that doesn't speak English as first language, but it's really an American colloquialism.

    Isn't this just an example of correlation does not imply causation? Put two statistical curves together and it looks like one is affecting the other one. It Could be that the tax cuts to the rich people actually Did create jobs somewhere but that something else caused the loss of jobs somewhere else, and all-in-all it looks like the tax cuts didn't do anything. It could be that way, not saying that it is, I'm just so very sceptical of stat. charts that people throw out.

    mediocre? it was outstanding. it is something every person in every econ class should have to watch. tax breaks for the rich don't create jobs. people need to understand this basic principle. jobs are created by demand. if there is no demand, companies have no motivation to hire more people. demand sells goods and services. if people don't have ANY MONEY, there can't be demand. if lots of people have money to spend, demand goes up. if demand goes up, companies need more employees.

    You don't need to be an expert to get what the point was, and yes, the graph can be a bit misleading. But the article itself was too ad-hominem and that still doesn't address the issue of income inequality, it just points to a discrepancy found in the data. I'm sure if we hire a team like the one headed by Dr. Muller, the answer would be clear on this matter. I can tell you one thing, the economy is collapsing and bailouts are only to 1%, meanwhile people pay. there's nothing wrong with this?

They need to create the confidence in the economy that drives up demand and that will create more jobs. You don't have to give Washington more money for them to create more confidence.

    not true. I watched it. Anyone can watch it. It's makes good sense and was not blown out of proportion in any way. Trickle down is a falsehood. watch the video. I'm sure you didn't. watch Nick Hanauer on "watchextravideo" channel. I emailed Ted and they sent me the video.

    Keep in mind, they don't publish every single talk they have. If they felt that the talk wasn't top-standard, they'll keep the file for anyone interested in seeing it, but they won't broadcast it. This one only hit so many headlines because the people they invited made such a big stink over it.

I think I see two youtube comments linking to the speech within view of this comment box...No point in banning a video or a piece of audio in 2012. It just can't happen. Then again the people who run TED are probably in there 60's and think it's 1965 still ;p

    While Clinton was POTUS, he let Greenspan cut interest rates and deregulated the banks and led to the Internet bubble and ultimately the housing bubble.

    -

    The economy wasn't doing well under Clinton. We were just doped up on cheap credit and running huge personal debts. Jobs were flowing out of this country over to China which allowed us to borrow more and buy cheap shit made in China. Now we have Walmarts everywhere and no industry

    -

    I don't think his talk was at all political. It's about inequality, the balance of economy, and how consumers and the supply side are a feedback loop contrary to what some may think. A large gap between the haves and have nots and it's effects is a human issue and only gets politicized by those who choose to make it political.

    In a pure capitalistic market, wages are determined by productivity. If one employer hires a worker for less than his productivity, there is a profit opportunity for another employer. Thus wages will tend toward MRP. Unfortunately in state capitalistic societies, the massive amount of regulations tend to make it far more difficult for entrepreneurs to take advantage of profit opportunities and start up businesses. With less competition, "wage slavery" is even more likely to exist.

    Antitrust laws are anticompetitive. People claim there are unfair advantages when the only unfair advantage is the government. Antitrust laws keep companies from merging together and HELPING consumers when merging may be more profitable and more efficient. Companies that cannot compete with companies that serve the consumer better, lobby the government for antitrust laws to be put in place so they can gain stay in business at the expense of the consumer.

    Except the trickle up theory, while much better than the trickle down theory, is still a "trickle" theory.

Besides government in the marketplace forces all other players to raise their standards or lose customers.

    The disagreement was based on nothing more than his *personal opinion*.

    He simply didn't agree with the assertions Nick made in his talk, so he decided to ban it.

    All Nick said was that relationship between Consumer & Entreprenuer is symbiotic. Treating capitalists like "kings" is not good for society or the economy.

From your idiotic belief that the lay-people-led Opus Dei is ACTUALLY the "self-flagellating monks in a secret society" BS created by Dan Brown for a FICTIONAL book to a number of other unfounded, unresearched garbage.

    I'm not a fan of Ted talks. It's mostly just a bunch of elitist getting together and pretending that they have all the answers. They shy away from real issues, and at the end of the day they don't accomplish anything.

    Those "elitists" happen to be some of the most educated, experienced scientists, social workers, reformers, philanthropists and researchers we have in our society. Pretending that these people have nothing important to say and no accomplishments to speak of when so many have an incredibly influential positive effect in their given fields is ridiculous. That just proves that you really don't know anything about the topics they discuss.

    I've seen my fair share of Ted Talks. I will agree that some good topics are covered and that the people there are highly influential, but at the end of the day they are worthless. The CEO's that attend keep robbing us blind. The Scientist that attended are brilliant with or without TED talks, and the entertainer are just useless. You can't save the world with an infomercial(what TED talks really are). TED talks has been around for 20 years. If it really matter the world would be a better place.

    First of all, not all CEO's are evil robber barons bent on nothing but profit and exploitation. Secondly, the technology you're using to communicate with people like myself on the internet was created and sold by those very same corporations CEO's head which makes you an accomplice to "evil deeds" if your argument held any weight. Thirdly, TED talks allow those very same brilliant scientists to communicate with us in a concise and easily digestible manner that would be hard to find elsewhere.

    I completely disagree with your premise.

    For commodities , the free market does a great job, but it isn't the be all end all of economies.

    Capitalism's primary drive is that it increases efficiency. That's good and all, but it also screws the little guy, and heavily favors those from privileged backgrounds. In this regard it's inherently flawed.

    You balance a free market with a government whose interest is to serve the people. Hence tax increase and spending cuts are both needed.

    I agree, but not with "For commodities , the free market does a great job"

    The free market in a race to become efficient only counts the immediate future. This is why people will destroy the overall capacity of an oil well to get a better flow rate over the short-median term. Or the wasting of natural gas by burning off just because it's inconvenient for that operation, overfishing is another example.

    The best thing about capitalism isn't efficiency, it's liberty. The ability for individuals to own and transform private property is a hallmark of the non-aggression principle. Efficiency is great, of course, but it's fallacious to say the free market "also screws the little guy." In fact, the little guy is far worse off in the type of society we have now, a state-run capitalistic society (fascism lite perhaps), in which the privileged use the government to enhance their privileges.

Many like to say because we have a deficit problem we need to increase taxes. I completely disagree with this. I think people in general need to realize that increasing taxes to fix deficits is the opposite of what needs to be done. It's subsidizing the bad behavior of government, not fixing it.

I think it's simpleminded to act as though the deficit can be fixed from a one-sided position. Will raising taxes alone fix the deficit? No. But the same is true with spending cuts.

A balanced approach of re-introducing taxes that the top earners used to pay is a good start. They didn't need that tax cut when Bush gave it to them anyway.

that alone won't solve this, spending cuts also need to be part of the plan.

Also acting as though the government can do no good is also simple-minded.

The Richard Wilkinson talk was far more thoughtful, and frankly better prepared. He advocated a more progressive tax system and TED wasn't afraid to post it.

Anyone who thinks TED is afraid to post progressive ideology doesn't know much about TED. But the presentation must be distinguishable from content available on nightly opinion cable shows.

Somebody needs to mention the obvious correlation between the increasing unemployment (3:55) & the increasing productivity (3:50). More efficient work forces are replacing human laborers: computers & robots. They can more easily handle heavy or tiny materials as well as complex calculations, can work 24/7, don't complain, need no retirement pay, and so on. Capitalist entrepreneurs in markets, in a system that dictates cost efficiency, are destined to favor technological automation if available.

It's normal to have high productivity and high unemployment. a company wants to hire least amount of people in the recession and force more productivity out of the hired personell it has,even in downsizing companies. They fire one or 2 people, and let the work be divided by the others

Burglar alarms, Banks' ATMs, supermarkets' self-checkouts, online shopping websites, too, are examples of displacement of human workers.

Automation has been taking over farms, factories, and now service sectors, all according to technological advancement. The resulting increase in productivity is essential to minimizing the scarcity & prices of commodities.

Big corporations should be taxed, but technological unemployment is an inevitable consequence of a successful capitalist stage.

Asserting his speech was "political" is a tacit admission that the GOP is the PARTY OF THE WEALTHY!

Just for the record, the talk certainly isn't an overly impressive one. But let's keep in mind that TED isn't saying they aren't going to post it because they don't want to make people bored. They aren't posting (yet, at least) because it's too controversial, and Melinda Gates supports contraception. I think if they posted it as they normally would have, no one would even have paid attention to it. It's ~6 minutes long, and not very emotionally driven.

From the National Journal, the email TED sent to the speaker: "But even if the talk was rated a home run, we couldn't release it, because it would be unquestionably regarded as out and out political. We're in the middle of an election year in the US. Your argument comes down firmly on the side of one party. And you even reference that at the start of the talk. TED is nonpartisan and is fighting a constant battle with TEDx organizers to respect that principle...."

Bad reporting TYT. The speech has been noted by many in the audience to be poorly presented, not thorough, and just not much more than a rich guy saying in very partisan ways that he is against other rich people.

And he isn't the only speaker to discuss income disparity at TED. He is just the poorest example.

Having seen the talk, it's clear why it wasn't chosen, it's overtly partisan, and not a great quality speech.

There is another excellent TED talk(linked in the statement) that talks about the issue of income inequality that actually shows a lot more data and talks about what that data means without the speaker's taking any specific position about policy being the overriding feature of the talk.

Here is the talk linked in the statement, it's a good watch:

I rarely speak out against TYT as I generally share their opinions. However, this "story" is far too sensationalized. Shame on you, TYT, for doing exactly what Fox/every other Republican media outlet does. The TED talk was never banned, it was simply not featured. There was no censorship or suppression of ideas/opinions/facts. The talk, itself, was not of sufficient quality by TED standards and thus was not featured. Nothing to do with the contents of the speech. Do better, TYT.

Those tax breaks DO create jobs... just not here. These companies claim to be American to gain American tax breaks but actually function externally to exploit foreign labour. So let's see: money leaves America in the form of purchasing foreign-made product while simultaneously money fails to remain in America, thanks to weak tax laws.

And people still wonder why America is so badly fucked financially? It's a simple-but-lopsided equation, one you'd have to be blind (or Republican) not to grasp.

What about creating 2 categories of company for the tax code : if they use 51%+ of american in their entire supply chain, they got the right to lower taxes&subsidies... But if they use less then that, they got to pay high taxes and don't have the right to subsidies.

Well, that cynicism assume that they get elected by no-one when, at least at the procedural level, it's not the case. Now, that kind of thing (although I might be pushing it) would ask for popular involvement in the political process, which is difficult to do because the politician, the media, businessman, think thanks, comedians push a form of cynicism that seem a bit panglosian in some aspect... I would prefer a form of meliorism, added with a bit of skepticism to keep everyone in check.

it's not about having top 1%, it's about the gap and the economic inequality of the top and the rest. It's a well known economic fact (they even teach this in econ 101) that higher taxes on the rich encourages investment. And it's investments that pays your wages, not happy rich people. They invest more when taxes are high because they would rather invest in businesses and make more money than give it to taxes. But if there's no incentive to do that, they'd rather keep the money and reduce risk.

Thanks for the assessment of the presentation. Thankfully they don't usually censor presentations but instead let their viewers make the judgement on what is and is not worth watching. I've seen several bad presentations posted by them, so the whole "not up to their standard" is an easy and transparent excuse. I'm not buying it. They made an error.

His video is also extremely relevant for hundreds of millions of American citizens. I know that doesn't really qualify him as "genius" or "brilliant" but he is speaking from experience and not from a textbook or second hand accounts so it adds a little quality to his words. There is also the fact that outside of internet comments, no one is saying what he did so having this video really helps reaffirm what most of us already believed.

I read Ted's explanation of why they chose not to post it. They said the audience gave it mediocre reviews (despite the standing ovation at the end) and that it was "explicitly partisan" (despite the fact that, at the beginning, Hanauer blames both Democrats and Republicans). Basically, the explanation was bullshit. What's really weird is this talk is nowhere as controversial as Sam Richards's...

I just watched the talk. It's actually true that the language is more controversial and politically charged than the vast majority of TED talks. He is very blunt and very critical of current affairs. But unless TED has an extreme attachment to a certain optimistic, cheerful aesthetic, that's shouldn't be enough to ban a video.

it would be wonderful for TYT to fill in the gap that the establishment continues to filter out and control i.e. Nick Hanauer speech. if TED or any other organization edits out facts, truths, etc then TYT should immediately have that particular speaker on their show to re-do their presentation, speech, etc whatever. it'll build subscription, ratings, and the people can access it from their homes educsting themselves. those fees to get in TED are set up to filter out the poor too.

No, I think it's a relatively recent creation. I believe Frank Luntz made it up. If you're not familiar with him, he's a successful propagandist.

This is the most simplest thing ever - TED doesn't want to be criticized (rightly or wrongly) by any media outlets as being some progressive, left-wing propaganda machine for socialism. As much as a bullshit assessment as it probably is - mud sticks and TED is just being smart about it.

Part 3:

And a non-story about a talk not being chosen, because we believed we had better ones, somehow got turned into a scandal about censorship. Which is like saying that if I call the New York Times and they turn down my request to publish an op-ed by me, they're censoring me.

For the record, pretty much everyone at TED, including me, worries a great deal about the issue of rising inequality.

Part 2:

At TED this year, an attendee pitched a 3-minute audience talk on inequality. The talk tapped into a really important and timely issue. But it framed the issue in a way that was explicitly partisan. And it included a number of arguments that were unconvincing, even to those of us who supported his overall stance. The audience at TED who heard it live (and who are often accused of being overly enthusiastic about left-leaning ideas) gave it, on average, mediocre ratings.

Part 1:

Today TED was subject to a story so misleading it would be funny... except it successfully launched an aggressive online campaign against us.

The National Journal alleged we had censored a talk because we considered the issue of inequality "too hot to handle." The story ignited a firestorm of outrage on Reddit, Huffington Post and elsewhere. We were accused of being cowards. We were in the pay of our corporate partners. We were the despicable puppets of the Republican party.

Also, for the record, we have never sought advice from any of our advertisers on what we carry editorially.

We only care about one thing: finding the best speakers and the best ideas we can, and sharing them with the world. For free. I've devoted the rest of my life to doing this,

Please push a retraction for this tomorrow. That's not what they said at all. TED posted a blog post with their side of the story. It includes Hanauer's video which relies heavily on personal anecdotes instead of facts, which is why they didn't publish it. It should also be noted that TED conferences have about 10,000 videos per year & only 1 video per day. This was a non-issue that Hanauer BS'd into an issue with lies and PR.

If Cenk would try to understand zero percent interest rates and the regressive effects of the money printing - he would realize that the Federal Reserve is a HUGE factor in the growing wealth divide. And, even worse, in aiding the mostly non-productive wealthy (bankers) in garnishing that wealth. (It's not the only factor - but it is a bigger factor than tax policy alone.)

An institution that both Republicans and Democrats largely support.

In my opinion the only acceptable reason to pull the ted talk is to make sure that a precent for using ted as a forum for political discourse is not set. You have to remember that ted has made itself out to be an intellectual organization, and they may not want to reduce themselves to a mere pulpit for political squabbling. I also really don't think they want to introduce the possibility of being labeled as a partisan organization.

Hardly surprising, TED has over the last few years steadily degenerated from fascinating science and technology talks into wishy washy 18 minute platitudes and science-lite.

At $3000 a ticket, it's hardly surprising they are afraid of alienating their audience. These people don't like anybody upsetting their mutual back patting events, whether its TED, or a million other conferences, dinners or clubs.

They've had talks about biology (evolution), and long held and accepted deep business myths, and the way education should run. All things that go against the mainstream republico-christian beliefs.
