From Publishers Weekly:
Twenty-something journalist Brook sees the best minds of his generation scrivening away as corporate lawyers and accountants, and he's furious about it. His fresh and striking pay-gap polemic laments the plight of "educated, idealistic young people" who must choose whether "to be a sellout or a saint"—that is, whether to take a lucrative corporate job or to eke out a pauper's existence in creative or nonprofit work. "The new economic realities," Brook writes, "are shaping people's lives, closing off certain career and lifestyle options. They are reducing freedom." Brook marshals facts and interviews to make his case for "more egalitarian economic policies." Decrying recent economic shifts that have widened the chasm between private and public sector employment, he skewers centrist "New Democrats" as well as usual-suspects such as William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan. (June 1)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
It's hard to imagine that the rhythm of this POS "documentary" could be as messed up as it is by accident (I saw the last 2/3):
The American Ruling Class (clip)
Artifice is the downfall of The American Ruling Class
Preachy, condescending and shockingly naive
Hey, there's Gypsy Scholars in the clip and some even try to sing!

no mention of Federal Reserve Bank Corporation nor the debt it creates... the financial impact of this unconstitutional Bank is tremendous... 21 trillion dollars of skyrocketing debt... getting all of our federal national tax payments
