This World Leaders Forum program features a moderated panel discussion on the New York City book launch of the provocative new book, Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making, by Columbia University’s distinguished alumnus David Rothkopf (Columbia College ’77), followed by a question and answer session with the audience. The panel discussion will examine the unique role power elites play in globalization and the ways this superclass impacts growing social, political, and economic disparities. It will also explore the University’s particular role in training and shaping global elites.
