A fun and informative animated short narrated by Ed Asner recounting some of the historical facts about our current economic problems. The right wing is wrong across the board. Wrong that trickle down economics works, wrong that high tax rates on the rich harm the economy, wrong that deregulated finance would lead to prosperity, wrong that global warming is a liberal hoax. Just wrong wrong wrong, but they have the money. So they pay for think tanks like the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute to lie to us. They pay for the major media to obscure and misdirect. And unfortunately those billions spent trying to deceive us simply work. These are not stupid people. They wouldn't blow all this money if it wasn't effective.
Here's another effort to cut through the fog created by the super rich.
