Who really creates jobs?

Business leader, Nick Hanauer, presented the following speech at the TED conference.  His thesis may surprise you.  Hanauer, a very successful business owner/creator, argues that business owners don't create jobs.   He debunks the popular myth that tax breaks to the rich result in the creation of more jobs. 

But, if not them, then who does create jobs in our nation?  Watch his short address and react. 

[You may want to read Hanauer's essay in Bloomberg's Business Week hereMy thanks to Rev. Gerald Britt for putting me onto Hanauer!  Once I saw Hanauer's presentation, I remembered that TED refused to post it, deeming it "too controversial in the current political climate.]
