Who's Going To Davos

This year’s edition of the World Economic Forum begins on Tuesday in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos.

According to the organizers, some 3,000 visitors will attend this year's meeting.

As our infographic shows most of them come from the United States.

Well with the government shut down... there's no money to be made in 'Murica!

Perhaps even more ironically, Bloomberg reports that President Trump's Davos trip is "day-to-day" during the government shutdown.

Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said at a press briefing on Saturday that a final decision hasn’t been made on whether Trump will travel as planned, given the federal government shutdown that began overnight.

The president is expected to arrive at Davos on Jan. 25 and make a speech to the forum on Jan. 26.

I wonder WHO RUNS the Davos ???

 

who actually organize all of these activities, invitees, reservations (place people next to each other who can speak about this and that and all of these "technical details") etc. ... my guess would be they do not trust with such sensitive issues the "Swiss Guvernment" ... aka... the cheesemakers ...  got to be somebody in the know so to speak ... i could guess in general, but i am sure someone would know it ???

A lot of it is managed by the World Economic Forum or WEF (based in Geneva). Basically it is a glitterati hangout where Globalists make speeches, eat 40 dollar sandwiches and spend a lot of money in a smallish Swiss Ski resort.  I hope Trump spanks their asses and gives them all waking nightmares about upcoming populist revolutions

RE: "I wonder WHO RUNS the Davos ???"

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a Swiss nonprofit foundation, based in Cologny, Geneva, Switzerland. Recognized by the Swiss authorities as an international body,[1] its mission is cited as "committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas".

The Forum is best known for its annual meeting at the end of January in Davos, a mountain resort in Graubünden, in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland.

So how are we getting fucked by the shut down? Oh ya, the congress critters and their staffs are all still getting paid. Probably why they don't care...

 

Can we just stop the fed gov spending? All of it for a year, to see if we have a better place? I think that once the people figure out how unnecessary the leeches are, they will never be allowed back in!

So when Trump says "Fuck you assholes! What have you done for my deplorables lately?"

Jim Acosta will say "What is a deplorable?" ;-)

Isn´t it ironical this year`s meeting has a presence of a person, whose chances the Davos mob earlier tried to curb totally. Now this elite has to listen to his Mater´s Voice.

It's interesting...  266 from the UK.  Must be a really important country, huh?  Why's that?  Saudi Arabia not on the list. Is that because the usual attendees are hanging upside down in a luxury hotel?  Israel not on the list.  Surprising, given the amount of anti-Israel rhetoric I've been hearing these days?

More importantly, how do the organizers of this event achieve diversity?  Are they hoping that a bunch of illegal immigrants show up?  Are they busing in transgender people for the event?
