The Fall of Davos Man

The Fall of Davos Man

Robert Reich
The annual confab of the captains of global industry, finance, and wealth is underway in Davos, Switzerland at the World Economic Forum.

Meanwhile, Oxfam reports that the wealth of the 2,200 billionaires across the globe increased by $900 billion last year – or $2.5 billion a day. Their 12 percent increase in wealth contrasts with a drop of 11 percent in the wealth of the bottom half of the people of the world. In fact, the world’s 26 richest billionaires now own as much as the 3.8 billion who comprise the bottom half of the planet’s population.

they should be afraid of us. I hope they’re starting to have dreams of their worthless heads rattling around in wicker baskets.

At least they can have a taste of the terror they put the rest of us through on a daily basis.

Good article but ending paragraph far too anodyne.

Message to Davos men and women: Your time is almost up. Take less. Share more. Now. Or else.
