Plot Summary
The real-life editor of Harper's Magazine, Lewis Lapham, presents the viewer with the career paths of two fictional characters in an attempt to answer the question, "Is there such a thing as the American ruling class?" Though they received identical degrees from Yale University, Jack Bellamy (Caton Burwell) comes from money and Mike Vanzetti (Paul Cantagallo) doesn't. Despite their intelligence levels and good intentions, the two men's lives seem to be dictated by their family backgrounds.
