One could argue that nowadays there is not much disagreement among schools on how modern economics should work, but historical evidence shows the opposite.
Despite the economist Larry Summer’s announcement, aired on the morning just before Davos, that their time as masters of the global economy is over, people are still likely to have plenty of questions for central bankers at this year’s World Economic Forum. Especially for those coming from the Swiss National Bank.
In Davos, there’s a fleet of World Economic Forum shuttles to whisk people between the Congress Center, hotels, parties, side events, and meetings, just to name a few destinations. This gives us a window into their day and also lets us strike up interesting conversations. On the Line 1, we meet Sangeeth Varghese, an Indian leadership thinker as well as a founding curator of the Global Shapers of the World Economic Forum. “I work in the strategic consulting industry in India. I also founded a nonprofit organization for student empowerment—it is called LeadCap Trust,” Varghese says.
