Celebrating the publication of three new books about how a class of the very few attempt to usurp democratic rule and bring the environment to the brink of disaster. Nancy Fraser discusses Cannibal Capitalism, Robert Ovetz discusses We The Elites, and Douglas Rushkoff discusses Survival of the Richest.
