Description
Are the nations of the world ruled by 'establishments' of elites? Of course they are. More than that, established elites of the world have increasingly joined together across national borders. There is, in fact, a truly 'Global Establishment' running the world today. This book describes this new transnational class formation which arose from the 'great disaster' of the 1930-60 period. Transnational joint ventures, bribes and other connections have become increasingly dense; a single multiplex set of cross-border networks is observable. The book describes these networks which bind the elites of Northern and Asian countries. Unfortunately, this new global formation has disbenefited great numbers of non elites in underdeveloped countries. Farmers, fisherfolk, factory workers, even entire communities, have seen their interests damaged by the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, transnational corporations and other globally connected minorities. As a result, international wars are increasingly giving way to international class struggles as the primary type of transnational conflict.
