“The top 400 taxpayers in the United States exercise 10,000 times the material power of the average citizen in the bottom 90%.  This differs little from the power differential in Ancient Rome between the Senators, and slaves and farm laborers who made up most of the population.”

- Fred L. Block and Margaret R. Somers, The Power of Market Fundamentalism: Karl Polanyi’s Critique, 2014
