Why Jews are so powerful in various fields of life in spite of being minority?
I'm sure there are lots of unsuccessful Jewish people too, but in answer to your question, I think some groups of people build upon previous generations achievements and are more likely to inherit wealth of so on, which can give them an advantage in life. If someone grows up in a poor neighbourhood they can of course still make a success of their life, but there are more obstacles to overcome.
I wasn't aware of the fact that Jews had a disproportionate amount of power. But then, I don't really notice ethnicity much.
Because they are the most progressive which means the ends may matter more than the method.
Because Jewish parents invest into their children more that any other nationalities do. Others spend money on beer, shiny shoes, trinkets, etc. Jewish parents save for education for their Jewish children.
