    While this video is a great way to visualize what $3.7 trillion in money equates to, there is some flawed logic in what it’s trying to convey. If he truly is trying to convey how erroneous the taxation of the rich is to solving a spending problem, then the producer needs to ensure that the viewer is looking at the full picture.

    But unfortunately, you’re not given the full picture.

    Of course, the government isn’t the best entity to generate a return on investment. I’ll grant you that! But this video suggests there will be zero return on a $3.7 trillion investment. This isn’t $3.7 trillion in sunk cost. You have to assume there is some level of production. Without revealing this (we can’t predict the future), his premise is seriously flawed. I’m sorry, but this video is just another framed piece of propaganda that BOTH sides use to fuck with American citizens.

    Please stop learning economics from assholes like these. Go take a class in school.
