7 thoughts on “Goodbye To Davos”

  1. A couple of remarkable things happened at Davos this year. First, Argentina’s President Javier Milei spoke out against collectivism, saying (among other things) “Collectivist experiments are never the solution to the problems that afflict the citizens of the world. Rather, they are the root cause.”

    Also, the National Pulse reports that:

    “JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, a Democrat, said the 45th President turned out to be “kind of right” on several key issues, including NATO, immigration, tax reforms, and China. Dimon also cautioned U.S. and EU elites against demonizing the MAGA movement, as Joe Biden has, predicting “negative talk about MAGA is going to hurt Biden’s reelection campaign.””

    The remarkable thing is that the people who run Davos no doubt knew in advance what both of these men were going to say, and allowed them to speak. That alone is unexpected. Does it mean that Davos has given up on itself?

    1. I don’t “get” the part of Mr. Dimon, a Democrat and big-league banking CEO cautioning Mr. Biden to tone it down on the “negative talk about MAGA.”

      Does he want Mr. Biden to be reelected but thinks the path to get there is to not be too critical of Trump voters, i.e., not calling them “MAGA extremists” or “deplorables” or “fly-over gas-guzzling-pickup-truck-driving swing-state voters” or some such thing?

      Or does he think Mr. Trump would do a better job? If so, he should say, “Yes, Joe, call working class voters “MAGA extremists.”

      But if he thinks Mr. Trump has the correct policy prescriptions, how does a person that smart and who has gotten that far in the business world think that Mr. Biden is ever going to say, “Yeah, I am going to tighten up the border and start drilling for more fossil fuels.”

  2. All that is necessary for their power to evaporate like spit on a hot driveway is for the media to stop covering them.

    Unfortunately that’s not likely to happen.
