    Bob, thanks for doing this research. Your so good at explaining things! A true blessing.

      Hey, you stole my name 🙂

    Do you have a link to the Jon Stewart Davos bit? Can’t find it on YouTube.

      Hmm sorry, I thought I included it in the links but I guess I forgot. Here it is.

    This is always framed in what I consider a false choice: populism (“The Rubes”) vs. technocracy (“The Experts”).

    If you talk to technocrats, opposing their agenda always makes them think you’re a populist or don’t believe in science/technology.

    And I suppose I wouldn’t have a problem if technocracies actually produced good outcomes in the long run. But it seems that technocrats typically get things very wrong and make things much worse in the long run. Just about the only technocracy I can think of that seems well-run is Singapore, and that’s not exactly every liberal technocrats’ wet dream of a country. And it’s only about 50 years old in its current form, so give it some time.

    And your technocracy starter pack comes with a companion movie, available on various streaming services.

    Surprisingly good special effects for the time … bonus points for correctly identifying the various self contradictions in the plot.

    Hi, loved you analysis, it was a real eye opener for me especially on your take on the human relations aspect between these people and how easily our political leaders have acquired a new allegiance in secret with the people.
    Thank you very much.
    Regarding the socialist roots of fascism you seem to miss Adolf Hitler’s view on the subject, so please let me give you a link to check of his words which was also an eye opener for me

    Thanks Bob,

    In this episode you talked about how the World Economic Forum do not like super powers like the USA. Do you have any thoughts on their relationship to China? I noticed a video where Schwab introduced Xi Jinping to speak. I would assume that the World Economic Forum people admire the control of the CPP but are they allies do you know?

    Thanks

    I saw you post this on Twitter. Mind blown. Great work so far:

    @BobMurphyEcon on Twitter: “If you caught Part 1 of my podcast series on Klaus Schwab, remember that I said he had founded the “Young Global Leaders” program in 2004, and that I planned on looking at their graduates to see where they were now.

    “Welp, Klaus did my work for me:”

    As this episode is still the latest installment I had a comment in re: fascism compared to WEF strategies.

    In Fascism, the gov’t told the companies how to operate, whereas in WEF strategies, the private companies tell the gov’t how to operate…

    It’s more like a reverse fascism. (Just a thought from someone who barely understands what fascism historically/currently means.)

    Bob Murphy says ‘and bla bla’ a lot when he quotes from the writings of the WEF. No wonder, many people have probably observed that the language the WEF uses is an ideological marketing language which is slick and as grand as possible, in order to impress, to override and avoid critical and individual thinking. For real thinking people the language is hollow, slick, actually unintelligible, and it becomes tedious and draining (to individual thinking). It is the officialist language of bureaucratic and corporate elites, designed by marketeers, the language of a parrot circuit where thinking is really absent, and everything is about expensive and powerful ideological creeds, slogans and tendentious hyper language, actually an elitarian zombie language. If you have ambition to rise to the top, you have no chance if you do not learn to talk the language.

    But no worry, they do groom people who have learned the doctrines, but who can formulate the ideology somewhat more in their own terms. For instance, they have groomed the classical music cellist Yo-Yo-Ma, so that he can convey some of the utopian message in his own somewhat vague but more sympathetic words. And they are probably recruiting others who become the spokesman of various groups who are not much moved by the elite’s officialist hyper language.
