A book about oligarchs or billionaires?
December 11, 2017 8:11 AM   Subscribe

I can't remember the title of a book - please can you help me identify it? I think it's by a male author (American?) and he identifies by name the billionaires (or oligarchs, or powerful...) who run the world. I think the Kochs and Richard Branson get a mention.

I think the author is critical of these people.

I don't think it was published in 2017 - it may be a few years old.

Any suggestions much appreciated. Thank you.

Is it Dark Money?

No - it's not Dark Money. The book title I'm trying to remember is perhaps by a left-wing male academic(?) - must have been published before Dark Money. It's a wider view of the impact that these billionaires are having. May include a list of the billionares / oligarchs. Thank you.

Found it, thank you Wobbuffet.

It's Superclass.

Is "The Merchant Bankers" by Joseph Wechsberg, first published in 1966, still useful?

Came in to suggest Red Notice by Bill Browder. I'm adding Superclass to my reading list.
