Star of NBC’s Shark Tank Schools CNN on how Economics Works

Kevin O’Leary from NBC’s hit show “Shark Tank” takes on CNN and gives them a lesson in how economics really works. 

CNN has been hammering the “1%” taking the President’s tired Robin Hood theories and trying to indoctrinate their viewers with socialism… but it looks like they bit off a bit more than they could chew when they invited the brilliant Kevin O’Leary onto their network.

Mr. O’Leary succinctly and smartly educates CNN anchor Erin Burnett on how the market and job creation really work.

He reminds CNN’s viewers that the economy works best when government gets out of the way.

The dirty secret to the wealth gap is that it really doesn’t matter.

Do you care how rich the rich are getting if you are also getting wealthier? Of course not!

The problem comes when the government gets involved and the middle and lower classes begin losing money… that’s when we notice wealth disparity.

It’s time to get the government off of our economy’s back.
