This week, the world’s political and economic elite (not to mention a few movie stars) will gather once again for the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Whether you look at the WEF as a model for the future of global governance or an unseemly celebration of wealth and power at a time of economic distress, the inner workings of this unique institution are always fascinating to watch. Throughout the week, the Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer will be in Davos, blogging on what’s happening in the banquet halls and conference rooms — and how it will affect the world for the rest of us.
