Newsweek on "The Superclass"

The basic assertion of this article is that the world is run by a small number of people cruising around on their gulfstreams, who have more in common with each other than their countrymen.

The article is only 5 pages long, and so doesn't go into any great depth. For example, there is a whole class of wannabes who are quite successful in their own spheres, but who are still nothing compared to the superclass. And they know it. The wannabes are successful businessmen who are only worth a few tens of millions. I suspect that this is the real reason why wealthy people continue to invest, and to work - they know that they haven't really made it.
