Davos, Switzerland, is where most of the world’s “elites” congregate yearly to discuss and plan their vision of the world. Their latest annual meeting started January 23, 2008. (And people thought they elected governments to do their will. “Dream on Macduff,” as the saying goes.) Anyway, they assemble there in all the luxury befitting their status as a would be world “super species,” and they plot and plan their future “global operations.” There is nothing they do not have a plan for, or a solution to. These are clever people and some of them are “philanthropists” and know how to keep their wealth intact. You, the ordinary taxpaying citizen help maintain their comfort zone. Some of them have tax-free foundations, offshore tax havens and all the other tax-free perks that enables them to live the good life, at your expense; after all, you have to pay taxes and do not have their power or influence. Still, they will be voting on “a plan of action” for the world in Davos: “Through a series of boardroom-style roundtable discussions, the World Economic Brainstorming (WEB) will identify the most pressing threat to growth and then engage participants in a facilitated group discussion to prioritise a plan of action using an electronic voting system” (Daily Telegraph .U.K. 19/1/2008). So, who needs national parliaments of the peoples’ representatives when you have “Davos Man” voting for you?
“...Harvard Professor Samuel P. Huntington described Davos Man (a phrase that first got widespread attention in the 1990s) as an emerging global superspecies — and a threat. The members of this class, he wrote, are people who ‘have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the élite's global operations.’”
Their “global operations” consist of networks, clubs, think tanks and numerous other organizations all designed to bring about the end result of that which they want to achieve: a managed society, which they can control, manipulate and make subservient to their view of the world, and ruled by “Davos Man.”
"Those who go to Davos include many of the top businessmen, bankers, government officials and opinion formers in the world. They and their kind control most international institutions, most of the world's finances and many governments." 
Governments of course are elected by the people. Then the political leaders consort with the powerful moneyed elites and when their political days are over many of these same politicians finish up on the boards of the elites, in appreciation for a job well done. The system looks after its own, one might say. And the money masters of the system “know” what’s best for the planet.
“The phony ideas of global warming and poverty eradication, two ‘crises’ devised as rationalizations for endless wealth redistribution schemes, will be on the agenda this week in Switzerland. And make no mistake about it: Davos meetings are about planning actions – far from the prying eyes of the annoying constituents who actually empower these masters of the universe.” 
These would-be “masters of the universe” at Davos are just another tentacle of that taxpayer funded un-elected bureaucratic octopus that makes up the United Nations. Investigative journalist, Joan Veon, had this to say: “The World Economic Forum is a facilitator for the goals and objectives of the United Nations-which is world government.” Ms. Veon knows of what she speaks “having covered 64 Global meetings around the world in the last ten years.” 
Note: To see all the connections regarding “the global agenda, groups, organizations, players, philosophy, modus operandi and charts” I recommend reading Joan Veon’s book which is called, “The UNITED NATIONS’ GLOBAL STRAITJACKET.” It is an impressive investigative report.
There are many reports available on Davos, but I believe it is best summed up by this statement: “This [world economic] forum was founded in 1971, but did not become a major force until after the Cold War ended. It then became a great social whirl based on the illusion of a harmonious world conjured up by transnational business elites under the rubric of “globalization.” Its real purpose, however, is to use private wealth to corrupt national leaders into betraying the interests of their people” (William R. Hawkins … Senior Fellow for National Security Studies at the U.S. Business and Industry Council).
