Whatever else Davos in NY might achieve, it seems clear that a heck of a lot of Americans will be far more conscious of the Forum than they ever were before. Some will be irritated by it. Apparently, commuters can’t leave the north side of Grand Central Station because of the security. Others will just be able to do a namecheck.
Befitting its leadership in this city, The New York Times is going to town on its coverage of the event. I liked their report from Davos, Switzerland. “Maybe after being in New York, the wife they have had for the past 30 years will end up looking a lot better than before,” says Felix Hubli (who runs the best restaurant in the Davos area, incidentally).
