In America, the rich are getting richer. Isn't that great? Doesn't that mean there's lots more wealth to go round? Or is it good news for the rich but very bad news for the poor?740 Park Avenue, Manhattan, is one of the most exclusive addresses in the world, home to some of the richest Americans, the 1% of the 1%. Ten minutes to the north, across the Harlem River, is the other Park Avenue, in the South Bronx. Here, unemployment runs at 19% and half the population need food stamps.The American Dream of equal opportunities and hard work says you can be born in the Bronx and end up at 740. But is that dream still true? The film argues the super-rich haven't just bought the exclusive addresses – they've bought the whole system and the'’re running it for themselves.

The documentary itself is good stuff.

...but this is un--believable. This good 'ol boy pull yourself up by the bootstraps, everyone has an equal chance is bullsh*t.  I know it's bullsh*t, you know it's bullsh*t, your mom knows it's bullsh*t...

These s are so far removed from reality...where do you even start?!  I'm sorry, but I'm not sorry ----- america. Land of the free my ass...

...and ayn rand. She's not worthy of name capitalization. Ho.

I watched that a coupla months back when I was going thru a documentary phase on netflix.  Is this the one with the "Monopoly Game experiment"?
