“The World Economic Forum sees its role as ‘improving the state of the world’. But the political analyst and author Anand Giridharadas speaks for many critics when he dubs Davos ‘a family reunion for the people who broke the world’”
The elites gathering in snowy Davos, Switzerland, January 22-25 are supposedly “improving the state of the world.” This news from those that are marketers of the “news” must make everyone feel very happy and content. Especially the over 6o million refugees around the world, many of whom are displaced victims of numerous wars.
A number of these illegal wars have been started by some governments that have attended or are attending Davos meetings. Some of these wars have also been financed by some in the financial system, and some multi-national corporations have profited by supplying the weapons that create all the carnage. More on this at links below.
Meanwhile in the “democratic west” there are thousands of homeless people living on the streets. Thousands of people cannot afford to buy a home, thousands cannot afford to rent a place to live, and many thousands have to go to food banks. Here in Canada:
“Each month, over 850,000 people turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are children and youth.”
And in America there are over 35 million or more on food stamps.  [2a]
“Poverty, homelessness, hunger, unemployment, underemployment, and overall deprivation in America increase under either wing of its duopoly governance – while Wall Street, other corporate predators, and its privileged class never had things better.”
Meanwhile the price of food keeps rising in the conglomerate owned stores. People are paying more for less. If people are lucky enough to own a house, the insurance rates on many of their homes are jacked up constantly. Still, this is the lot of the taxpaying serfs, to continue to pay, and pay, and pay, while the “elites” party and play in Davos. But hey, they are, “improving the state of the world.”
The world of the “elites” includes offshore tax-havens:
“Pre-Davos report shows how 1% now own more than rest of us combined.
Runaway inequality has created a world where 62 people own as much as the poorest half of the world's population, according to an Oxfam report published today ahead of the annual gathering of the world's financial and political elites in Davos....
Nine out of ten WEF corporate partners have a presence in at least one tax haven and it is estimated that tax dodging by multinational corporations costs developing countries at least $100billion every year. Corporate investment in tax havens increased almost quadrupled between 2000 and 2014.” Oxfam January 18, 2016.
Meanwhile, the world of the taxpaying serfs, means being tax slaves for the Political Parasites of Taxland.  Some of whom have been known to attend Davos meetings and give speeches, and announce government policies to the “elites,” before being debated by them in their parliaments.  [4a] [4b] [4c]
And many of these politicians when they leave politics finish up on corporate boards or other positions in the establishment. Oh well, it’s surely good that the elites look after their own!
In summing up, I believe all these meetings whether it is Davos, G7, G 20, Bilderberg, NATO meetings, and other elitist gatherings, are all inter-connected with each other. Many attend each others meetings. 
Many of the same governments and so-called think tanks, and many other assorted groups are all part of this Globalist system and its New World Order. I believe they have effectively managed to subvert democracy, and impose out in the open, a semblance of being “caring” and “compassionate.” Their Davos slogan: “improving the state of the world,” I believe is a snow job.
