The Rich and the Super-Rich : A Study in the Power of Money Today
Ferdinand Lundberg (30 April 1905 – 1 March 1995) was a 20th century economist and journalist who studied the history of American wealth and power.
Ferdinand Lundberg began his career as a class-conscious critic of American democracy in the 1930s. This 1968 book was a best-seller, going through a dozen printings in just one year. It's basically a thousand- page, well-researched rant against the few hundred rich people who run the country, and rig the system so that they don't have to pay taxes. Almost all of the important wealth in America is inherited -- the myth that anyone can make it is designed to keep people stupid, and too busy to complain.
