Product Description
 
In this insider's investigation of the global elite's efforts to 'change the world', Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can - except ways that threaten the social order and their position at the top. Why should our gravest problems be solved by the unelected upper crust instead of the public institutions it erodes by lobbying and dodging taxes? Why should we rely on scraps from the winners? Trenchant and revelatory, this is a call to action for elites and everyday citizens alike.Anand Giridharadas is a political analyst for MSNBC and he teaches journalism at New York University. He has been a foreign correspondent and columnist for the New York Times and a McKinsey analyst.In this insider's investigation of the global elite's efforts to 'change the world', Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can - except ways that threaten the social order and their position at the top.
