This review is from: The New Few: Or a Very British Oligarchy (Kindle Edition)
This is a ferocious critique of the current decayed state of capitalism from a right-wing viewpoint, and the result is extraordinarily stimulating and illuminating. It castigates the enormous growth of inequality of income that has grown up over the last thirty years or so, and cites George Orwell's warning in 1946 of the drift towards oligarchy, the New Few capitalists, who have sidelined the shareholders, the nominal owners of the companies they head, have avoided all personal financial risk, and paid themselves gigantic salaries. It is a book that those of all political parties, or of none, can and ought to read with profit and concern, as we try as a nation to determine the path ahead.
