David Rothkopf is the author of Superclass. I strongly recommend the book. It is simply amazing.
But you may not have time to read it. So, you can watch a few videos.
Begin with his hour-long speech at Middlebury College, one of the most expensive schools in the world. It is one of the institutions that trains America's elite.
Rothkopf is an engaging speaker. He gets his ideas across very well. You really should consider them.
He also spoke at Stanford, another elite school. You cannot download one video, sadly. But the first one is crucial. It is five minutes long. It is the heart of the matter. Ignore it at your intellectual peril.
