The Rise of the Superclass

Author

We can't legislate against historical trends in the global age, but we can look more closely at the well-networked superclass – those who have broad influence across international borders on a regular basis. The Superclass has money, power, and influence – but it's woefully short on ethics in the global interest. Author David Rothkopf (<i>Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making</i>) describes this influential core of the global power structure and stresses that economic prosperity can't be the only metric of a civilization's success.
