American Inequality and Tax Evasion

There is a terrific new short film from the American News Project on tax evasion by the super rich.  The piece documents Senate hearings on the use of offshore banking as a mechanism for tax evasion by extremely wealthy Americans.  It also includes footage of world's richest man and voice for moral sanity among the rich, Warren Buffett disclosing that the tax rate he paid in 2007 is nearly half that paid by the hourly-wage earning office staff at Berkshire Hathaway. Wow.
