Why should the world's biggest problems be solved by an unelected network of rich and powerful thought leaders, rather than public institutions and elected officials? That's one of the central questions that journalist and political analyst Anand Giridharadas explores in his new book "Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World." Giridharadas joins Forum to discuss the ways that entrepreneurs, philanthropists and tech billionaires are affecting the world -- and perhaps making things worse.
