Chrystia Freeland

On Wednesday, Nov. 28, hosted a live chat with Chrystia Freeland about her book, Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else. Use the player above to replay our discussion.

Ms. Freeland answered some questions that we at had after reading Plutocrats, and also responded to questions that readers submitted through our Facebook page, Twitter and in the comments section of this website about the personality types of today’s self-made oligarchs, the growing gap between the rich and the poor, and the economic consequences of the world’s wealth being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands.
