Why I Wrote EconSov Part 1: The Tyranny of the Davos Clique

Updated: Jan 21, 2021

It’s a common question in my briefings: “Why did you choose to conduct thousands of hours of postgraduate research presented in your book Economic Sovereignty?”

In a phrase – to improve the human condition and because nobody else was willing or able to do it.

More specifically – the tyranny of the Davos Clique, my obsession with innovation and entrepreneurship, and educating virtuous philanthropists, executives, elected officials, and the general public since their command of Economic Sovereignty is the only remedy to economic malaise and collapse. In this, part one, we’ll address the Davos Clique.

Thorough data-driven analyses of their claims are scant if present at all. Who would finance such research? I chose to do it myself at great expense.
