The author the new book "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" describes an oligarchy on a 'global' scale.  It apparently details the growth of capitalism and distribution of wealth over the last 2 or 3 centuries.  The book has gotten nothing but rave reviews.

 

This particular review describes the book as a "work of vast historical scope, grounded in exhaustive fact-based research, and suffused with literary references".

Of course the US is ruled by an oligarchy. Almost every system of government boils down to an oligarchy. No monarchy or dictator stays alive for more than five minutes without the support of powerful people around it.

 

If anyone is interested in learning about some of the true powers that run this country then this book is an excellent resource:

It's a few dollars if you buy a used copy. If someone wants a free copy I'll send them one.

"The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country's citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded."

 

nothing shocking about any of this. they've let lobbyists have their run of the place for the last several years and no one in washington seems able to say no to a handout.
