Rainer Zitelmann is the author of 19 books, including The Wealth Elite (LID). He was previously a senior editor at Die Welt newspaper. Later he became the leading communications consultant for the real estate sector in Germany.
The Power of Capitalism "This wide-ranging tome, which covers economic systems across China, Africa, Germany, the US and the UK exploring the power of capitalism, may not persuade staunch anti-capitalists of the author's alternative viewpoint. However, it certainly offers a robust challenge to anti-capitalist views and provides a series of well-defined and researched arguments in favour of a capitalist society." CITY A.M. The Wealth Elite "Rainer Zitelmann's study of the psychology of the super-rich is an ambitious project. Few could be better qualified for it than Dr Zitelmann - an historian, sociologist, journalist, businessman and investor. There has been no comparable study and it is a compelling read for all who need to understand the characteristics and motivations of rich entrepreneurs." Michael Maslinski, The Financial Times
