Αυτό εμένα με παραπέμπει στην οικονομία των λίγων (θα μπορούσε και των προνομιούχων, αλλά δεν βλέπω να χρησιμοποιείται).

Όπως κι αν έχει, νομίζω ότι και οι δύο (οικονομία των ισχυρών, οικονομία των λίγων) αποτελούν καλές λύσεις για κείμενα με επικοινωνιακό χαρακτήρα, καθώς η πλουτοκρατία περιορίζεται από την ξεκάθαρα αρνητική συνδήλωση και η πλουτονομία δεν είναι ακόμα ευρέως γνωστή.
