Chrystia Freeland: On the Super Rich Persecution Complex

Posted: 12/10/2012 1:22 pm

In the final part of our three part interview, Thomson Reuters Digital Editor Chrystia Freeland spoke with us about the super rich and their feeling of persecution. Freeland gives examples of wealthy individuals feeling victimized, including a Wall Street hedge fund manager who sent an email to friends with the subject line "battered wives," comparing their treatment by President Obama to that of battered wives. Another person Freeland spoke to said "the rich today in America have become an oppressed minority similar to oppressed ethnic minorities."

Do you think the super rich in America have been persecuted by government? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
