Wie setzt sich die Wirtschaftselite in Deutschland zusammen und welche Voraussetzungen müssen erfüllt werden um eine Topposition in der Wirtschaft zu erhalten? Funktioniert die Auswahl nach dem Leistungsprinzip und bekommen nur die Besten der Besten einen Platz in der Wirtschaftselite? Sitzen in den Führungsetagen Personen, die sich durch ganz besondere individuelle Leistungen aus der Masse hervorheben oder sind es andere Faktoren die entscheiden wer entscheidet?

Nach einer Abgrenzung und Bewertung des Klassenmodells gegenüber dem Schichtmodell prüft diese Arbeit die those Rainer Geißlers, dass sich zur Sozialstrukturanalyse der gegenwärtigen deutschen Gesellschaft der Begriff der sozialen Schicht eignet.
