Economics, or what's wrong with our societies . . . .

Check out this page where Cory Doctrow provides a review of Thomas Picketty's "Capital in the twentyfirst century".
Of note is the observation that despite the clear solution to the dramatically uneven distribution of wealth being to Tax the rich, no government is willing to do that.
I'm not going to go over every detail of it since I have not read the book myself but this does point out the simple fact of the situation we are all in : We don't get rid of the gangsters or try to attack them because after decades of caving in to their every whim, they are now preceived as too powerful.
What will come next?
