Not long ago, extremely wealthy venture capitalist Nick Hanauer delivered a TED Talk on how taxing the rich actually creates jobs instead of destroying jobs, which has become a Republican talking point.
TED refused to air his talk because they claimed it was too political. Hanauer complained. TED stands by its decision, but has relented by releasing the video. Judge for yourself.
