reading and wondering...

At the New York Times site, Paul Krugman writes: "... it continues to amaze me how the 21st century is starting to look like the 17th century with fancier technology: tax farmers, mercenaries, and now rentier cities."

CEO's are the new kings reigning over the new empires, which we call international conglomerates. What does the Kingdom look like in this context?
