The Poor and the Plutocrats

From the poorest of the poor to the richest of the rich

Francis Teal

  • Builds an understanding of the disparity between the richest and poorest members of society using clear and accessible examples (for example, 'Was Mr Darcy a plutocrat?')
  • Contains a wealth of data demonstrating the incomes of the rich and poor through the prices of the assets they own
  • Very topical, coming at a time when distrust of, and anger towards, the one per cent is rising
