Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The concern is that that the wealth and power concentration reached "unhealthy" levels - say, not necessarily unprecedented, but not of normally sustainable level. If you compare with the situation with few decades ago (before Reagan, Friedman, etc), workers were getting better salaries, living better and more secure lives, while now they can't "aford" that. You have a class of priveleged deciders, and the rest must follow a pretty slavery routine. There is some risk of totalitarian control by some 6 or 60 of those 6000.

Aomw thoughts of mine in that direction are here, here and here.
