The anxious elite

Anyone who still believes the global elite consists of fire-breathing market fundamentalists should look at the programme for this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos. One of the main themes of this year’s event at the exclusive Swiss ski resort was sustainability with other sessions on business ethics, the economics of happiness, rethinking values and the Millennium Development Goals. Among the speakers were staunch critics of growth, including Jim Wallis and the Archbishop of Canterbury, while Stewart Wallis, the executive director of the New Economics Foundation, chaired a session on rethinking economics.

An account of the event by Jeremy Warner of the Daily Telegraph can be found here.
