the elite few. >>

This is probably a stupid question, but who are the "elite few?" I hear this term tossed around constantly, or in other contexts as the powerful, but has nayone compiled a list of these individuals and what their crimes against society are? I ask this as a businessman and socialist. Is really people that need to be trageted are just the insitutional arrangements of capitalist society? There is a big difference in how one appraoches resolution to capitalistic externalities.
