The problem with Davos
Sir, – It’s time for the annual jamboree at Davos where our elected elite pay homage to our unelected elite (World News, January 24th). They come away further brainwashed into believing that the maintenance of free market economics in its current guise is a solid metric for global freedom. Nowhere do they see that this system curtails freedom by trapping millions in abject poverty, crippling debt and allows countless children to wake hungry each day.
How much longer must we tolerate the undermining of democracy by this cossetted unaccountable club, whose only remit is to line the pockets of a minority while abdicating themselves of any responsibility for the obvious failures of this system and its devastating implications. – Yours, etc,
