Before returning to her native Canada to become Trudeau’s Minister of International Trade and since January 2017: Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland wrote the bestseller Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else, winner of the world’s most prestigious award for non-fiction, the Lionel Gelber Prize. The wealth gap is now greater than it was in the Gilded Age, the age of the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts. Shot in the Ukraine, Greece, Davos, the USA and Canada, Plutocrats travels through a world increasingly paralyzed by joblessness, debt, and economic uncertainty and shows the effect of the wealth gap on global politics, including the Brexit and the recent election of Trump.
