Video (Debut!) on Plutocrats & the Forbes Billionaire list

I sat down yesterday for a conversation over coffee with Elaine Wolff, the Editor and Founder of Plaza de Armas, a smart, San Antonio-based news and commentary site.

We covered the Forbes Billionaire list, my recent review of Chrystia Freeland’s Book Plutocrats, elite legitimacy, and the profitability of new media.

The conversation starts at 59:40 and runs to 1:11:42

  1. Mike,
    Really enjoyed the interview, particularly the analysis about the legitimacy of the plutocrats, and how they are viewed by the rest of their compatriots. Best, Jorge

  2. Articulate as always, Michael. My only disappointment in this informative conversation was that you didn’t make that Max Headroom face at the end!

Public Speaking


I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
