The hypothesis of psychopaths taking over should be fairly easy to test. They either have more children than normal people or they do not. Having "money" to be more appealing doesn't mean anything for evolution unless they actually out-breed us.

I also suspect that there is a sharply diminishing return on money and power after a point. A someone with $100 million is not 10 times more desirable than a someone with $10 million.
