In the summer of 2013 the U.S. political landscape began to overflow with bureaucratic leaks. Lower level staffers who did not have the pay-grade to make decisions on what gets out into the public realm started leaking reports, data, and stories into the press to try and affect policies they felt were important.
This gets to the core of what Rothkopf is trying to say. The system is so democratic that the lowest man on the totem pole can possess just as much power as the woman at the top. The system is ungovernable and "power" is fleeting.
This was a good read and I would recommend it to anyone interested in politics, sociology, and business.

This book touches on all the crucial frameworks to understand the evolution of business alongside government, and the elbowings between them, leading into the present. It is a little odd that it spends as much time as it does with a massive and very old (still operating) Swedish corporation, though this turns out to play quite well against the other companies and governments shown across hundreds of years. Due time is spent weeding through ideas, from Marxism to USA's founding philosophies and legal structures, to today's organizational and legal structures across the world. After hearing all this, one can claim with good justification to some solid expertise in these topics. This is one of the better overall titles I have heard, and I've heard hundreds. It lays a groundwork to think clearly about the shifts happening now in politics, economics, and business.
