"Hyperagents" is a word I encounter far too often. In a way, though, it's appropriate--the hyperagents in question have caused far more damage to the global economy than we prosaic agents ever could.

Yes, interestingly, Schervish first used the term in writing of the dot com wunderkinds, just before that bubble burst. He could write of Mr. Fuld, head of the firm formerly known as Lehman, and big philanthropist, in the same spirit. We hear a lot about the "Journey" of these hyperagents from success to significance, or salvation. We hear less about Fortune's Wheel on which they like the rest of us are broken and tormented.
