The Rich, John Kampfner
Wednesday, 25 February 2015

The super-rich inhabit a parallel world, competing with each other for power and influence. They mesmerise and horrify us in equal measure. But is this globalised and gilded class something new?

John Kampfner will be in conversation with Giles Fraser.
