Roughly 3,000 rich and famous people have gathered for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Europe’s highest town (5,120 feet). The list includes 780 Americans, nearly three times as many as any other nation.[1]

CNN Money reports "the summit produces the year's best opportunity to rub shoulders with chief executives, central bankers, Wall Street money men, influential regulators, powerful politicians and their entourages." Membership in the club costs more than $60,000. But attendance requires buying a ticket on top of that.[2]

The conference began yesterday, and President Trump will deliver the closing remarks on Friday. That could be interesting since, according to CNN, Davos conferences have "long advocated for exactly the kind of globalism that Trump has rejected." In addition to finance and political leaders, celebrities such as "Cate Blanchett, Elton John, and Shah Rukh Khan will provide a sprinkling of star power."[2]
