What is it like sitting on top of a hill? As children we played a game called King of the Mountain. The United States and the Developed countries sit on top of other world economies. Two hundred giant corporations, most of them larger than many national economies, now control well over a quarter of the world’s economic activity. When on top of the hill, one can rewrite the rules to solidify one’s position and increase even further one’s coffers. The wealthier are getting wealthier, leaving the rest behind.
