The Global Power Elite On Display: No Conspiracy Theories Necessary

If you remember C. Wright Mills’ book The Power Elite and then you imagine taking his world to a global scale, you might get something like Peter Phillips book. This review describes the 17 most powerful organizations that operate in virtually every country in the world along with their interconnections. The book also makes some useful distinction between power and wealth. There are capitalists who are interested in wealth and less about power; some interested in power more than they care about wealth and some, of course who are interested in both.
