It’s rather rare that I recommend a book, but I really have to say something about this book. Chrystia Freeland’s “Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else” explains why some people become super rich and the other 99% don’t. This is not a story book about how rich people spend their money, instead it explains the mechanics that are at work in today’s society and how they favor some people. What abilities increase your chances to become economically successful, an history of rich people and how the mechanics of becoming rich changed over time and much more.
Sounds like stuff you’ve already read? You most likely have heard about this and that about rich people, how they got their riches in the news or a magazine. What this book really does is put together all the puzzle pieces into a whole picture, clear as never before.
Despite being full of information it is easy to read. Highly recommended Buy now in the book store of your choice.
