“Rebuilding trust and increasing global cooperation are crucial to fostering innovative and bold solutions to stem the pandemic and drive a robust recovery.”
– Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum 
“I don’t consider the COVID to be the great crisis. I think that the Great Reset is more of a crisis!”
-Diana Johnstone, from this week’s interview
LISTEN TO THE SHOW
The gathering of world leaders and elites completed their annual event this week.
The six day online Davos Agenda Summit, the first major global summit of the new year, saw the arrival of 1000 global leaders including heads of State and government, big company CEOs, and heads of multilateral organizations, along with members of civil society and academia. The program was built around the theme: A Crucial Year to Rebuild Trust.
A variety of topics were on the menu, including Artificial intelligence, the fourth industrial revolution, climate change, social justice, gender disparity, and trade. Although the over-riding focus was addressing the “economic, environmental, social and technological challenges following the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum Founder and Executive Chairman was quoted as saying the following:
“In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to reset priorities and the urgency to reform systems have been growing stronger around the world.”
The pandemic, organizers say, accelerated the systemic changes that were apparent before it began. At the conference, Schwab released his latest publication, “Stakeholder Capitalism: A Global Economy that Works for Progress, People and Planet,” building a post COVID future on 50 years of advocacy for the stakeholder’s approach.
What smells off about the approach however is the consequences for the less well off. Where does the common woman and man have a seat at the WEF? If multiple frauds and deceptions are being committed throughout the presence and reporting of the COVID crisis, what similar deceptions could be waiting in the wings at the Great Davos Delivery?
This week we will be dwelling on this theme,
