Video proves Davos billionaires clueless

Description....

Rick Sanchez reports on the skyrocketing wealth of the richest people and declining standards for the rest. He examines a recent discussion in Davos, Switzerland where Dell Technologies CEO Michael Dell seemed to imply that by donating to charities, billionaires should be trusted to decide what the rest of us should and should not have. He also alleged (incorrectly) that a 70% marginal tax rate has “never worked,” only to be corrected by MIT’s Erik Brynjolfsson.
