    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Meet The Fortress Hotel That Separates The Davos Billionaires From The Peasants

Tyler Durden's picture


The theme of this year's Davos meeting where the world's wealthiest and most powerful people meet to enjoy each other's company, a fawning media, and of course the best food and entertainment that money can buy, is social stability, class hatred, and how to fix a world torn by a record wealth inequality.

An ambitious task to be sure, especially for the very people who have benefited the most from the record wealth transfer of the past 5 years. Still, while these true Robin Hoods of the modern gilded age are desperate for a few minutes of humanitarian TV exposure, or at least a soundbite or two, their advice to the peasants out there is quite clear: don't get too close.

And just to make sure the appropriate distance of at least a few hundred meters to every member of the great unwashed class they are "saving" is maintained, here is the hotel in which the bleeding heart Davos billionaires are staying: a $170 million fortress surrounded by barbed wire, security cameras, motion sensor and even its own helipad.

Oh, and for those dignitaries of the non-private sector staying here, guess who is picking up the bill dear taxpayers.

Sure sure .. 19th century defenses in a drone drone world. How hard would it be to get a dozen or so cheap drones with some payload to bust through some windows at high speed.

To make sure?  A few hundred meters is well within the range of the average Swiss citizen.

With a multitude of multi-billionaires in the world what is the cut-off for not being invited?

Would someone with a measly 1 billion in assets be considered part of the club now days"

I would think 5 billion is still a paltry sum.

Although the Zapruder film shows the bullet exiting out the front.

Bullets make tiny holes when entering and leave large holes when exiting.

(Sorta like the government, they tell you you'll only feel a pin prick, but when they're done with you you know for sure you've been reamed a new asshole.)

Much more effective  line of thought. Microbes have a smaller radar profile. Though It would be a shame (not to mention a waste of taxpayer's money!) if their party got spoiled like a cruise ship with a norovius outbreak.

NEWSFLASH:  Dune is fiction.  The consequences of abusing mind-altering substances are non-fiction.

PS: I don't rail against the use of drugs by adults.  Do as you please.  Do not expect me to save you from the consequences.

If you were Buffet, Soros, Fink or whoever, would you malinvest the money of your clients?

Those guys are just doing what everybody else does: investing their time in something they like and are good at. No need for envy.

If you were a central banker in 2008, hadn't you felt the need to intervene?

If Zerohedge is right, things are going to change. Those times usually get tough. Prepare yourself and your family accordingly. That is what everybody else would do, including those guys in Davos.

What do you mean "if"?

If Zerohedge is right,

Once the propaganda channels either cannot deny the truth or their reporting gives a true picture of the sad state of affairs, it is too late to do anything.

The time to prepare is now and that window is closing fast.

Those channels will go dark before ever telling the truth. One or two might go dark immediately after, but I wouldn't bet on it.
