Do we live under a form of power structure in which power rests with a small number of people who are distinguished by family, wealth, education, corporate, or military institutions?

As a mixed economy (of state capitalism and capitalism) the majority of the power rests within the state and or social elite. This probably makes up around 2%, give of take, of our lovely nation. Unions take a tiny chunk of power for our socialist aspect of this.

It isn't a complete oligarchy, nowhere close to that of Russia, but there are some people that have more power.
