Rothkopf / The Superclass

Global elite dominates in old ways…

Above: From a review in The Seattle Times, by Carl Hartman (AP), David Rothkopf’s
new work. Rothkopf is no conspiracy theorist, he served under Clinton as deputy undersecretary of Commerce for international trade (see Hartman article), and this material should be familiar to anyone watching and analyzing international affairs.

Please also see Yale Global Online, “Superclass and the Inequity of Globalization.”
In this fascinating article, Rothkopf — whose research and writing identifies a tiny elite that, in his view, dominates the contemporary global market — gives a brief analysis of their dynamics and makes interesting comparisons to historical ruling classes, from heir-based power structures to modern CEO’s and mega-corporations.

Sobering thoughts in a sea of change.
