    There has always been some gap between rich and poor in this country, but in the last few decades what it means to be rich has changed dramatically. Alarmingly, the greatest income gap is not between the 1 percent and the 99 percent, but within the wealthiest 1 percent of our nation-as the merely wealthy are left behind by the rapidly expanding fortunes of the new global super-rich. Forget the 1 percent; Plutocrats proves that it is the wealthiest 0.1 percent who are outpacing the rest of us at break-neck speed.

    Like many other things, organized crime has been globalized. In McMafia, Misha Glenny discusses, among other groups, the Russian mafia, Colombian drug cartels, and Chinese labor smugglers, explaining how organized crime exploits the developing world's poverty, as well as new technologies. He makes clear that global crime and terrorism are rooted in the West's material affluence.

    Roy says: "Worthwhile Overview"
