    Resumé

    Identifying the most privileged and powerful individuals in a society is always controversial. Whereas media and popular culture turn the discussion of power and privilege into entertainment, the social sciences, particularly in Denmark, have refrained from engaging in discussion on the distribution of power and privilege in society, or have at least kept this discussion out of harm’s way by retaining it in a strictly theoretical universe. By not invoking a public imagery of the powerful, the social sciences leave the floor open for conspiracy theorists, political populism and general disenchantment to explain how privilege and power remain in the hands of the same people. In this chapter, we therefore aim to answer a simple, yet complex question: who are the members of the most powerful group in Danish society?
