Plutocracy and Politics

There was an interesting op-ed piece [registration required] in the New York Times this week which summarized some of the arguments made in Kevin Phillips’s ‘Wealth and Democracy’: A Political History of the American Rich. Mainly it talks about the appalling concentration of wealth in the US, and the lack of desire to do anything about it. From what I’ve read elsewhere, the book itself isn’t one of Mr. Phillips’s best, but the op-ed piece is worth a quick read.
