How Do Davos Billionaires Wage War On Inequality? It All Starts With A Bill...

Tyler Durden's picture


How does a group of Davos billionaires resolutely crush inequality? Well, it all starts by spending CHF 80,193.00 on assorted fingerfood plates, drinks and of course: Bollinger. And don't forget - you aren't really fighting the great war on inequality unless you spend 30 Swiss Francs on water and 460 francs for snacks. Anything less than that and your 0.001% peers may think you are merely an imposter in the great class convergence war...

Wow...I thought I was going to be a real smart ass here by taking a look at the Swiss Franc currency conversion to put this into perspective.  Well.  It is $1.12 to each US Dollar.  That shut me down.  Was expecting it to be like .09786 per dollar or something.  Yikes.

The Green Room reference on the bill refers to an Intercontinental Hotel Group promotion for UK members offering a 30% discount on hotel services. This bill was obviously for a reception at the hotel hosted by someone from the UK. Lots of champagne and white wine for the 150 or so guests. I am sure many of us have been to weddings that cost more than this. The cost of this party is a non-event. The question should be, who paid for it. Perhaps the UK taxpayers?

Courtesy of mid-market rates, that total is very nearly $90k US

If you consider the 2012 median wage was a pretty low $27,500 and there have been few if any improvements since then,  ( ), then this bill amounts to well over 3 x that amount.

Think about that: THREE annual median US salaries, before deductions. Wonder how many "after all deductions" median wages that will be once the Affordable Care Act becomes fully "operational"??

CHF 210 per person, so it depends on exactly what type of hors'd'oeuvres were served, there are different prices for different vintages all simply labeled "white wine", but given that magnums of Bollinger are only @$400 each it it actually seems rather cheap by local standards esp. given the peak season markup... unless it was a bill for take-away (then again if it's an Intercon it "should" be cheap)

The annual cost of living indexes that use a baseline of NYC priced at 100 all consistently put Zurich and Geneva well above 150, and the Davos crowd would basically be a small high-end subset of the "elite" in those towns (lake front flats downtown were 10-20k per month last time I lived in one, so it just doesn't seem that out-of-this world by local standards).

If it's 150 guests, that's more than 500 francs per head.  I guess I am in the wrong demo.  I have never been to a wedding like that.  Even the "finger food" cost more than 200 francs per head.  Probably 99% of human kind never spent that much on a meal even using a spoon and fork.

The rope would cost a lot less.

Interesting that some of you rubes seem to think they are buying all this stuff with their own personal funds. 99% of this stuff is being charged as business expenses, which means customers, clients and taxpayers are footing the various bills. The richer you are the less you expect to do with your own money. I doubt half of these people are paying for their own hotel rooms, either. And there are sponsors, too.

Cops ganging up on people, feeling superior when in superiror numbers?  Never!  Oh, wait...

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—A federal judge overturned a jury verdict that had cleared four Albuquerque police officers of excessive force claims involving the arrest of a drunken man who was subdued using stun guns, bean bag rounds and a police dog.

U.S. District Court Chief Judge Bruce D. Black said it would be a miscarriage of justice to uphold the October verdict in the civil case filed against police and the city.

The April 12 ruling found that as a matter of law, the officers' use of force during the March 2009 incident was clearly excessive. Black ordered a new trial to determine the amount of damages that plaintiff Tony Nelson should receive.

"No reasonable person could believe that an inhibited, slow-moving 60-year old individual who made no physical or verbal threats and wielded no weapons could constitute a threat to the safety of any of the 47 armed and shielded police officers who stood 20 feet away," Black wrote.

Whomever is picking up the tab, it's a deductible expense. So no, taxpayers are footing this bill.

Who says this guy is a billionaire?

I've seen people who were drunk and high who didn't even have a MILLION dollars waste more then $90,000 in a single sitting.

This could have been Joe Kernan spending his life savings trying to impress people after one too many Appeltinis.

I doubt that anyone ever gets that rich by wasting his money in such a manner. But then, they don't need to get rich, they just are, and that's possibly why absolutely nothing can be done about it. And so, nothing can be done against poverty. We are all in god's hands now.

False.  Much of the world does enjoy upward social mobility, it's just harder than it used to be.  But still possible.

Everyone spends in some proportion to their wealth and in the case of the super rich that proportion is quite low compared to the plebs who have to spend all their income to survive.

I don't begrudge them their wealth. I begrudge the lack of wisdom in how they use their wealth and often how they generate their wealth.

After every party there is a hangover and sometimes even a revolution.

What's the big geal? A lot more will be spent by different "money managers" during the Superbowl weekend trying to steal money win business from diffrent pension fund crooks feduciaries.

$90k is less than 1 week running a billionaire's private boat.

In a nutshell it is just that, isn't it? I'd like to put these fuckers on my own personal diet and in my own personal boot camp here at the farm. That'll teach 'em to pay so much for something of so little value. Would they have starved themselves by quitting the joint and sending $100,000 to a village in Africa to feed the people there for one whole year? Of course not!

Fucking hypocrite assholes deserve to be named, called out and burnt at the stake in public view. We'll pretend to light them on fire just to get them to beg, cry and ask for mercy.

Fucking waste of space useless cunts and parasitic cocksuckers!

Completely obsolete and redundant. Any computer can replace them and costs far less to entertain! They are useless, we are not and yet they dictate to us what we can and cannot do. Are we completely off the rocker if we just rounded them up right there in Davos and shot them in the arse? They're useless for fuck's sake!

I just phoned 311 in New York City to find out if alternate side of the street parking regulations are suspended tomorrow, Monday.  Of course they aren't, so far, even if the street parking spaces in the outer boroughs are covered with snow and ice.  Former Mayor Bloomberg could be a guest at that party and did not believe in peasants having cars, they clogged the roads as Bloomberg would double park his Chevy Black Suburbans for hours at whatever evening party he was attending on the Upper West Side or wherever.  DeBlasio will follow his example, NYC needs that yearly 900 million dollars from parking tickets, including tickets issued for streetsweepers that never come or which go by with their intake debris chutes closed (the mechanical brooms just redistribute the debris on the street).

I googled it--Domaine Ott is a bottle of wine.  Not sure if you add OJ to that or what, but it's not a single serving.  This looks like the tab for a party, not a single guest.  It's not that outrageous given typical hotel markups.
