Some assigned reading for you:

Fascinating article by Chrystia Freeland. The key quote:

“[The rich] are becoming a transglobal community of peers who have more in common with one another than with their countrymen back home. Whether they maintain primary residences in New York or Hong Kong, Moscow or Mumbai, today’s super-rich are increasingly a nation unto themselves.”

It’s very interesting. Shades of Samuel P. Huntington’s concept of the “Davos man“.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
