Today, most colossal fortunes are new, not inherited – amassed by perceptive businessmen who see themselves as deserving victors in a cut-throat international competition. Like the ‘robber barons’ of the late 19th century, this trans-global class of successful professionals lives in an era in which emerging markets and innovative technologies are colliding to produce unprecedented wealth for more people than ever in human history. In the 19th century Gilded Age, those at the very top benefited far more than others--and from this pinnacle they exercised immense and unchecked power in their countries. Today’s closest analogue to these robber barons can be found in the turbulent economies of India, Brazil, and China, all home to ferocious market competition and political turmoil. But wealth, corruption, and populism are no longer constrained by national borders, so this new Gilded Age is already transforming the economics of the West, as well.
In her book, Plutocrats, Canadian writer, journalist, and politician Chrystia Freeland demonstrates how social upheavals generated by the first Gilded Age may pale in comparison to what is in store for us, as the wealth of the entire globalized world is concentrated in fewer and fewer hands. Plutocratsbrings together the economics and psychology of these new super-rich, and puts us inside a league very much of its own, with its own rules.
Join us LIVE on April 22nd as Freeland discusses the themes of "Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else."

Are giving persons more successful? For generations, focus was on the individual drivers of success (passion, hard work, talent, and luck) but in today’s reconfigured world, it is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. Join us LIVE for a webcast on April 17th, 2014 for a discussion based on Adam's New York Times bestselling book, Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success.
This book changes our fundamental ideas about how to succeed. Grant’s research groups people into takers, matchers, or givers. Takers strive to get as much as possible from others; matchers aim to trade evenly; and givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return. The author argues that although some givers get exploited, in most cases they achieve extraordinary results across a wide range of industries.
