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.

What would have made Power, Inc. better?
To have let the reader now that (at least the first part of the book) is going far far back in history, describing powers of church and kings, etc. I was expecting to hear more about todays corporate powers (which might come later in the book, but I found to so lengthy that I never get there).
What do you think your next listen will be?

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It's probably really interesting for history lovers.
