Excuse the cynicism but…
We find it interesting that the world’s (self-proclaimed) elite gather at Davos to discuss the world’s issues and problems, including climate change and green energy. They arrive singularly in private jets and gas-guzzling autos, wasting energy and yet proceed to posture and lecture about the need for a cleaner planet.
Why is it that participants at the Davos World Economic Forum cite income inequality as a major global issue, while spending, on average, over $100k to take part in the conference? It seem as if this money might be better spent more productively. Could it be the global elite have yet to hear of the time and money savings practise called ‘teleconferencing’?
Why is it, after years of negativity, that noted investor after noted investor are now coming-out with bullish proclamations? Most are crediting global economic strength for their positive forecasts, coming now, with the Dow pressing 27,000. Meantime, smart analysts know it’s the smaller investor who is the reverse indicator.
Excuse the cynicism BUT (isn’t there always a but) we are tired of the elite of the world lecturing the rest of us on how to act, think and invest, but failing to walk the walk.
