    I really want to know this. If you just start to read some random history books about wars, popular movements etc. There is a high chance that you will find something like "The elites supported the war", "Elites benefit from this", "Elites were the first to get this luxury", "Elites tried to control the nation" etc.

    I just want to know who these elites are? I mean in old times, Elites were the one who owned popular places, Kings, Warriors etc. But now time has changed. Warriors etc don't exist anymore because of the government. Government now rule the nation. But who rules the government? Of course, The most common answer would be "elites control the government". But who these elites are?

    Are they doctors? I don't think so.
    Engineers? Engineers can create big company, change the way we live and earn billions. But are billions enough to control the world? No.
    Business Men? Of course, YES! Business men are the one who specially study economics, How money works etc. They are the one who know how money works. Some people still believe that there are "trillionaires" around the globe who own good percent of the world income.
    I always wonder what are their income source? Banks? Food?

    So, What are your thoughts about this? Who are modern elites? What is their income source?

    Modern day ellites are marketing/programming/business people who are digital nomads and entrepreneur.

    The kind of money which a media buyer can make is unrivaled by anything unless you've some inheritance.

    People behind the World Bank, IMF and other big name banks. They are the modern world's elite in my opinion.

    In the past, the elite was determined by heritage. Today, it is determined by money and political connections. Money buy political connections, but it's not that trivial, as there are others with money who will try to outbid you.

    Just like there were levels in elite power in the past (think king/duke/baron/etc), the same applies today, although without formal titles, depending on the amount of money and political connections.

    No, you don't need trillions to be able to call the president on the phone and "ask" for something. Billions will suffice - millions in smaller countries even. :eek:

    On serious note, CEOSam was a SEO expert.xD So, I don't think any SEO expert can control a nation.

    reading about the wealthiest 0.01%...all come from the finance background. Bankers, fund managers, corporate finance, etc....you want to get rich get a job in finance increases your chances massively.

    Did you see the move the BIG SHORT? They walked away with $50m+....then you have small business owners fighting like hell for $200,000.

    Thanks for your reply. But there are always some people who are best at what they are doing. So, There is a huge chance that there are some people who have enough money that no one can outbid.

    Few days back I just found this video and this video is pretty good. As you can see in this video, Elites gets huge proportion of money from our taxes. Every country pays more than trillion dollar tax.

    The Elites are the 1% of the 1%, the people with enough money to corrupt whole governments, influence on a unimaginable scale, and create laws at will...which is going on today.

    Everything the great minds of the past warned us about is all happening today.

    Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, ?Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?? With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, ?A republic, if you can keep it.?

    Benjamin knew the system created was flawed, it relied on the people. Today the people are to busy with social media and twerking. The system and the world is being exploited as we speak.

    The elites are the ones like Google. They have access to all the information about what people search for. They know which sites are most popular. They know which sites are making money. The elites have connections with Google, and they most likely are partners, and receive the benefit of having access to the important information.
    Also the interent providers, now can throttle bandwith, and provide superior bandwith to the large companies that can pay the most money. The small companies that can't pay the most, can have their bandwith, throttled down.

    Who gives a fuck.

    The question you should ask yourself is whether or not what you are doing right now is putting you on the path to becoming one.

    Well, what would be the point of being in the government (one way or another) if you don't get to steal from the governed? :eek:

    Why can they earn at max billions? They aren't going to just to limit their earnings to just programming , they would invest money into other industries.
