How Billionaires Ruin Democracy

How Billionaires Ruin Democracy Due to her opposition to the establishment, she has been called "Canada’s Michael Moore." Journalist and author Lind McQuaig has been challenging the status quo for years, especially in her native country, and encouraging those in power to stick with universal social programs. Her principals translate worldwide, and her most recent book is a commentary on the problems that stem from having a wide discrepancy in wealth distribution in a society. In this video, WatchMojo.com chats with McQuaig about her book "The Trouble with Billionaires," as well as how having super-rich in society undermines democracy, and why philanthropy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
