The World Economic Forum is meeting at Davos in Switzerland. WEF is a gathering of about 3000 moneyed people in business and politics. Politicians are going there on the public’s dime, probably. The moneyed are either paying their own freight or being comped by some entity or other. Once arrived on the mountain, these worthies will consider the rather frightening array of Things That Could Go Wrong, or Things About Which We Should Worry. As far as I can see, not much comes from the WEF, at least not in the form of practical solutions. There may be some hortatory document, released at the end, that will urge a “spirit of shared sacrifice” or ‘redoubling of efforts’ or some other bromide. But one thing you can count on is that the Davos crowd won’t be joining in any shared sacrifice. That’s for The Little People. When you think about it, this whole business is quite an exercise in logistics. Imagine all the planning, the meetings, the lists and agendas, that have to take place. How many menials does it take to pull this thing off? A lot I would guess. That’s good for the tourist industry and the people who work in it. As far as the rest of us are concerned, I think the Davosians should have sat on their kiesters and not used up all that jet fuel, to come to the Land of the Matterhorn in order to tell us to be worried about global climate change. Stay home and spin, like Gandhi.
