From review on Amazon.com by Slaughter in Washington Post: 'n Superclass, Rothkopf, a former managing director of Kissinger Associates and an international trade official in the Clinton Administration, has identified roughly 6,000 individuals who have "the ability to regularly influence the lives of millions of people in multiple countries worldwide." They are the "superclass" of the 21st century, spreading across borders in an ever thickening web, with a growing allegiance, Rothkopf argues, to each other rather than to any particular nation.'
But, members of Gary North's site (www.garynorth.com) would read something that says that, yes, this has been attempted for @ 100 years or more, but that technology-driven decentralization is undermining the nation-state system on which the superclass has bet. And China and then India, these are where the wave of the future is. Barzun, Creveld (Rise and Decline of Nation-State) tell why: Justice is failing and so is the money for the retired.
