Plutocrats, Chrystia Freeland

This was a fascinating read about the history of and contemporary situation of global super-rich. I found Freeland's discussion of the similarities and contrasts with the Gilded Age industrialists, like Andrew Carnegie, illuminating. Freeland was also particularly good, I thought, at describing an "insider" view which is often hard-working and philanthropic, but can be myopic. I am fascinated by the idea of a group of people whose sense of identity is trans-national.
