Because the rich and powerful Davos crowd is out of touch and clueless

From Reuters here:

“Regardless of how you view Trump and his positions, his election has led to a deep, deep sense of uncertainty and that will cast a long shadow over Davos,” said Jean-Marie Guehenno, CEO of International Crisis Group, a conflict resolution think-tank.

Moises Naim of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace was even more blunt: “There is a consensus that something huge is going on, global and in many respects unprecedented. But we don’t know what the causes are, nor how to deal with it.”

This is kind of scary for a whole bunch of reasons.  It is as if these folks have not been reading the news for the last 40 years.  These folks love globalization but they love the part where they get rich at the expense of others and then they’re fucking shocked when pissed off people take it out on them at the ballot box.

If these people could look past what’s been incredibly profitable for them and see what the toll has been on others maybe they would have a clue.

I don’t deserve to get pissed on by Trump but these people sure do.
