    Oligarchy: A society where power is in the hands of very few people, usually determined by wealth, corporate and family ties, and the military.

Mellon, Andrew Carnegie) but also marked by extreme poverty. The term was coined by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner to mean “an era of serious social problems disguised by thin gold gilding.”

    So … are we there yet?!
