“If globalization has a spiritual home, it’s Davos, the Swiss ski resort that will play host to a who’s who of the planet’s decision-makers from Jan. 22 to 25. The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum is devoted to ‘improving the state of the world,...’” Bloomberg Business Week, January 16, 2014. 
Davos, Switzerland is where most of the world’s “elites” congregate yearly to discuss and plan their vision of the world. This year “2,500 of globalisation's movers and shakers”[1b] are assembling there in all the luxury befitting their status as a world “super species,” as they plot and plan their future “global operations.” There is nothing they do not have a plan for, or a solution to. “This year's theme is ‘Reshaping the world’"[1b] They 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 [1a] 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. 
“Davos people control virtually all international institutions, many of the world’s governments, and the bulk of the world’s economic and military capabilities.” - Samuel P. Huntington [2a]
Among the influential people who usually attend will be bankers and corporate chieftains, some of whom were bailed out with taxpayers’ dollars. Other usual attendees are representatives from the unelected International Monetary Fund (IMF) a banking cabal, financed by taxpayers dollars that has imposed austerity on a number of countries, Greece and Ireland are already suffering from their imposed “financial wisdom” and there is more to come for other countries. Austerity is the great panacea promoted by these unelected financial dictators of austerity. 
“Davos Culture is very much in tune with the rise of the egocentric “60's generation” whose vaunted “idealism” has turned out to be hedonism and decadence.” 
There will be no austerity in Davos. This could be called the place where Mammon, materialism, profits, planned politics, war makers and power congregate under one roof all with the aim of “improving the state of the world.” I’m sure all the taxpaying serfs, refugees, those who are unemployed, the sick, the homeless and victims of war  are all “happy” to hear that “Davos Man” has their welfare at heart.
“...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.’” 
And one could argue that national governments are facilitating the elites’ global operations. I believe this is being done under the banner of “secretive” and “hidden” so-called “trade deals.”    Which according to numerous reports could see the end of national sovereignty for many countries and result in a form of a, “Stealth Corporate Coup d’Etat”  Democracy is nearly dead, defeated by powerful financial forces and globalism, the ideology of the Davos elites.
There are many reports available on Davos, but I believe it is best summed up by the statement below:
“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”
