The World Economic Forum at Davos

Every year, the world's luminaries in policy, entertainment, business and media gather in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. This weeklong party in the picturesque mountains of Switzerland is an A-list, see and be seen kind of thing to do; oh, and there are lots and lots of panels and discussions too.

For the past seven years, National Review's Jay Nordlinger has attended (and even been a panelist!), sending back daily dispatches from the front. The first for this year is here. I urge you to return to National Review daily for about the next week in order to read subsequent additions. Nordlinger has a great eye for inconsistency and incoherence, and it is on full display as the world's gasbags gather to shower each other with their banality.

Banality at Davos?

Unfortunately it seems to be spreading.

This morning, I get a Facebook message telling me that "Jay Nordlinger is in his Davos crib enjoying some schnitzel and beer".
