The rich (and powerful) are different

Discussions at the meeting I just attended are off the record, so I have nothing to report. But I will link to some previous posts of relevance:

Creators and Rulers

How the World Works

Educational background of US elites

A word cloud produced from the collective bios would feature: Harvard, Stanford, Goldman Sachs, Rhodes, Marshall, Venture, Private Equity, Acquired, IPO, Technology, Energy, SEALs, Family Office, White House, Society of Fellows, ...

My wife looked at the book of bios and concluded "You don't stand out."  8-/

Excellent meeting. Would definitely attend again. Attendees are very open to learning and discussion, which makes it different from other meetings of similar exclusivity. Discussions are all moderated, which improves quality significantly.
