The Brave New Foundation, in partnership with AlterNet and nine other partners, has launched the “Who Are the 1%?” project. As the project’s website explains:
Inequality has ballooned over the last three decades as some of the wealthiest Americans have enriched themselves at the expense of everyone else. Who are the worst offenders?
You tell us. We’ll compile your suggestions and hold a vote to decide which ones Brave New Foundation will expose. We have just two criteria: they have to be in the wealthiest 1%, meaning a net worth of over $9 million, and they have to be using their wealth and power to keep down the other 99%. The rest is up to you. Have at it.
Watch the following video for more information on the project, and nominate someone who you think is the worst of the 1% here.
