I was a little discomforted by the way Rothkopf revealed conversations and tidbits about the lifestyles of the famous elite that he has known in the capacity of working for Henry Kissinger's consulting firm. At the same time, he made me aware how incredibly removed I am from the luxurious lifestyles these people enjoy and the deference with which they're treated. Rothkopf communicated about a different world, one in which he is apparently comfortable and knows the social rules.

Some good data about the ruling elite but a little too much fluff for my taste. David Rothkopf seems to think he is writing a novel so goes into too much detail about the texture of wood on fancy restaurants for example and seems to exhibit a need to impress the reader with his credentials. If you have the credentials, it is obvious, you don't have to busy yourself with name-dropping, etc. He is apparently enamored with powerful people which seems to remove his critical thinking and so he buys into their propaganda. His admiration of war criminal Henry Kissinger aka Heinz Alfred Kissinger is one example. Still worth the read for the serious student but wear your bull-shit protector.

If you want to know who rules the world, and how they do it, this well-researched book will give you an insider's glimpse into the .01% of the .01%. You and I will never be part of that world, but they do run things, and institutions, and governments, and corporations, and media empires -- all of the systems around us that determine much of our lives. A slave cannot be free until he gets to know his master. Intimately.

I admit it; I stopped reading this afternoon at page 224 because I was tired of Rothkopf's interminable encyclopaedic writing. There can be no question that the guy knows his way around the movers and shakers on our poor little rock but my brain is too small to deal with so much information, the significance of which I cannot determine. Yes Rothkopf told me innumerable bits of information but the stitching together of those bits was not as good as I thought they would be when I first opened the book.
I had the feeling during my days of reading that the author had a schizophrenic outlook on the world's elites, the 6 000 at the top of the pyramid. He takes paragraphs of writing to tell us about these people and the money and power that they control and then a few pages later he talks about the disproportionate distribution of the world's wealth. On the one hand he seems truly to be concerned about the people that are producing the wealth for these few and then he talks about these elites seeming importance in the world and he falls into that old Kissinger thought pocket about how the elites are so deserving. A reader is taken on a rollercoaster of attitudinal changes; if it were not for the author's professional work-life I could almost believe that he really understood the plight of the people producing the wealth for the 6 000.
Rothkoph has given us a thorough examination of the nature of these elites (probably too much for this reader) and I guess this examination is ultimately worth the read. I started the book to try to more fully understand how the contemporary world works and I must admit that Superclass has put together many of the puzzle pieces on the table. Why then am I dissatisfied? I guess I wanted a book that could not be written, one that offered me more reason as to why events occur. Yes I am sure that I should do the extrapolation of facts for myself rather than relying on the author to do it for me. I feel, however, that I wanted the author to give me a book that was less descriptive and more speculative. As a reader, however, I should not fall into the trap of criticizing a book because it was not the one I wanted to read; I should have been more selective in the beginning.

Superclass held my attention just because I wanted to know if it's possible for the world to be run by 6,000 people, if only in their minds. Author Rothkopf is particularly fascinated by identifying the top tier powerful people in the world and classifying them according to spheres of influence.

I was a little discomforted by the way Rothkopf revealed conversations and tidbits about the lifestyles of the famous elite that he has known in the capacity of working for Henry Kissinger's consulting firm. At the same time, he made me aware how incredibly removed I am from the luxurious lifestyles these people enjoy and the deference with which they're treated. Rothkopf communicated about a different world, one in which he is apparently comfortable and knows the social rules.

Perhaps from operating within in his capacity, Rothkopf is building a service function that will make him indispensible among the 6,000. Rothkopf has a sense of how the elite group may evolve, assume responsibilities for world problems. Perhaps he is needed to facilitate their contributions with each other.

Globalization is a force for good to Rothkopf because it is what brings the 6,000 together so they can agree on issues and thereby fulfill their duty to manage all people. He would have them address issues of concern to all people rather than merely attend to their immediate interests.

Decent enough book! Written clearly and to the point as honestly and frankly as you can about this bunch of people!! Pretty well done. Not the biased conspiracy theory stuff you usually get or even worse the almost unveiled Marxist approach sometimes seething through the author s words , but just a informative book about the money elite.

Good read
