Davos Day One--It's All About Power Going To The People. But Which People?

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on January 24, 2007

OK, the debate at Davos was fast and furious right from the morning start and it was all about the disaggregation of power around the world. Who are the winners, who are the losers?

Winners and Losers:

consumers over producers

China and India over the US and Europe

private equity over public companies and shareholders

non-government actors over states

“cosmopolitans” (people benefitting from globalization) over “locals” people getting hit hard from globalization)

connected intelligence over isolated intelligence

ceos who run collaborative networks over ceos who command and control
