Wills (zit. in Hartmann, 2004) zeichnet die Konzernvertreter als wahre Inhaber der Macht. Ausgehend von diesem Sachverhalt leitet sich für den Leser die Frage ab, wie es zu dieser state of affairs im gegenwärtigen Zustand gekommen ist. Die Wissenschaft ist bezüglich dieser Debatte und auch in der Diskussion über Macht und Einfluss der Wirtschaftselite gespalten (hier stehen Positionen gegenüber die einerseits die Definition der Funktionseliten vertreten, andrerseits die, welche die momentanen Machtstrukturen kritisieren, da sie keinen sozialen Aufstieg zulassen würden). Dieser Artikel wird in Bezug auf diese state of affairs besonders die Gedanken des französischen Soziologen Pierre Bourdieus – und hier vor allem das Habitus Konzept – in den Aufbau einfließen lassen. Zur Antwortfindung wird der Forschungsfokus kurz auf die Elitensituation in anderen westlichen Kulturen ausgeweitet. Unter Berücksichtigung der bedeutsamen Rolle, welche die Ausbildung und Sozialstruktur bei einer zukünftigen Elite in Bourdieus Überlegungen spielen, wird der Einfluss dieser Faktoren auf die zukünftige Charakter- und Sozialentwicklung eines juvenilen Menschen eruiert. Nach Kapitel four, in dem die zukünftige Entwicklung der nationalen Eliten aufgezeigt wird, mündet die Antwortfindung in das abschließende Fazit.
