9. (2013 February) Book Review: Plutocrats by Chrystia Freeland

The Rise of the New Global Super Rich
Outrageous fortunes abound in this absorbing study of the world’s wealthiest men
By Ian Birrell, The Guardian

There has always been a gap between rich and poor but this is just one sign of how the gulf has widened into a chasm over the past few decades. Creaming off more and more wealth is a new elite, a transglobal class of mainly self-made men carving out unimaginable fortunes. They are the subject of this timely and absorbing analysis by former Financial Times deputy editor Chrystia Freeland.

One thought on “9. (2013 February) Book Review: Plutocrats by Chrystia Freeland

  1. I bought and read Chrystia’s book. Her dad, Don Freeland, is a long-time Georgist from the Edmonton area; her grandad, Wilbur Freeland, was one before him. The apple did not fall far from the tree! But Chrystia grew quickly into a celebrity journalist. Let us embrace her with our full support!
