Shadow Elite: How the World&quot;s New Power Brokers Undermine Democracy, Government, and the Free Market  
 Found this and wanted to share it: "My first HuffPost Book Club selection of 2010 is Janine Wedel's Shadow Elite: How the World's New Power Brokers Undermine Democracy, Government, and the Free Market.It's a gripping, disquieting book that exposes and explains why it'sbeen so hard to bring about any real change in our country -- whyWashington no longer seems capable of addressing the problems ournation faces. Fingers have been pointed at everything fromgerrymandering to partisan polarization to the misuse of thefilibuster. But, according to Wedel, the real problem is much deeper --and more disturbing -- than any of these.


As she writes in Shadow Elite, a new "transnational" classof elites has taken over our country: "The mover and shaker who servesat one and the same time as business consultant, think-tanker, TVpundit, and government adviser glides in and around the organizationsthat enlist his services. It is not just his time that is divided. Hisloyalties, too, are often flexible."
