Days of Reckoning

For the first time in my career, I see the international establishment, sometimes called the New World Order, facing a crisis so large that its very survival is at stake. For the first time, these people are scared.

There are not many of them. In his book, Superclass, author David Rothkopf estimates that there are only about 6000 people at the top of the pyramid of world power and influence. They are mostly males, and at least a third of them have attended America’s most prestigious universities. Most of the others have attended comparable universities in Europe…

Nota bene: Do NOT expect the 1% to embrace quietly their greatest fear (becoming poor).  The last panic resulted in them persuading, cajoling and threatening the political class to bail them out with public money.
