Wealth in America — the 12-million view video

In November, 2012, an anonymous videographer with the YouTube account name “politizane,” posted a remarkable six-minute video visualizing with charts a set of data about income and inequality in America. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPKKQnijnsM.
In March, 2013, another anonymous YouTube account, “Learn Liberty” posted a response, using video featuring Brandon Turner, a visiting assistant professor at American University. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44LHBViTZI0. It also features Steven Horwitz, a St. Lawrence University economics professor. It had garnered 123,000 views as of November, 2013.

The “Wealth In America” videographer apparently remains anonymous, although this post indicates he lives in Texas, and credits most of the underlying data analysis to Mother Jones magazine.
