Davos 2015

Davos 2015

Deep thoughts at Davos this week at the 2015 World Economic Forum. 80 billionaires and many more multi-millionaires are meeting in the exclusive Swiss resort to solve the global problem of economic inequality. They flew to the alps on 1700 private jets to end Global Warming. We anxiously await the auguries and edicts of our oligarch overlords.
