The Problem of the Overclass

Here is a Slate article that looks at the problem of the overclass, the wealthy sometimes criminals that are our "betters". The poor and marginalized used to derided as the "criminal classes". But more can stolen with a gang of lawyers than with a gang of gunmen. Maybe the term is better applied to hedge fund managers and gamblers and looters of "public companies. Like Lord Black of Crosshabour a member of both the overclass and the criminal class.

The Onion has also noticed this problem, seriously.
