Mahatma Gandhi in Davos

John Cassidy of the New Yorker has an interesting blog post about the annual gathering of the rich and powerful at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. I hadn't realised that the delegates paid so much - tickets start at $71,000 - to attend. In Cassidy's opinion, 'The point of Davos is not to learn or think or do deals, but simply to be there - and to be seen to be there.'
