Why is the Nick Hanauer talk not posted?
I did read it. It wasn't much of an explanation. TED is quite relevant, it was emotional to say it isn't. But I'm still disappointed with Chris Anderson. I didn't see anything political with Hanauer's talk. He simply states an economic reality; industry is dependent upon consumers buying products... consumers are what creates jobs, and if the consumers don't have jobs and money then the economy falls apart. It's an economic ecosystem. It's a better strategy to support the middle class with tax breaks than the upper class, but politics isn't based in reason. THAT is the point Hanauer is pointing out. It's a simple message that needs to be said again and again until somebody starts to believe it.

Why is the Nick Hanauer talk not posted?
I've always considered TED to be a champion for intellectual expression and inspiration. Hanauer's talk is nothing we don't already know and it's very sad that TED would consider it controversial at all. I'm so depressed by this. I've lost all respect for TED and Anderson. Did you really think this wasn't going to get out? The question is, can TED even be considered relevant anymore (in the light of this)? Is TED really going to tether itself to that sinking ship? It seems to me that the answer is no to the first question and yes to the second, and that is painfully disappointing.
