Mr Nick Hanauer was invited to the 1st of May, TED University conference to make a speech on inequality.

Mr Hanauer's theme was that the middle class, not the rich, where the true job creators.

After Mr Hanauer's speech, TED did not to post the talk on the grounds that "the speech was too political, by its nature".
