If you’ve ever wondered what the heck is going on on planet Earth, here’s a piece of the puzzle. In this book, Anand Giridharadas, a card-carrying member of the global elite, exposes the remarkable hypocrisy and stunning arrogance of a group of people so addicted to money and power1 and so delusional in their own self-satisfied sense of superiority, that they will literally destroy the planet to “win it all.” The most remarkable thing about this story is that these arrogant putzs have convinced themselves that they are actually humanity’s saviours! “Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World” is a remarkable and alarming tale of greed, graft, addiction, and mental illness at the highest levels of our global society, by an insider who has benefitted from it all. The book is a revelatory testament to the power of guilt and shame and the lengths the elites will go through to ensure they don’t feel it at all, no matter how deserved they may be.
