#47 / You Are Not Invited
The hard copy version of the Wednesday, February 8, 2012 edition of The Wall Street Journal carried a full page display advertisement for the Journal's own CEO Council. The headline drew my attention: "Toward A New Global Order."
As it turns out, 100 chief executives of the largest companies in the world get together each year, sponsored by the Journal, to deliver pronouncements on the "economic issues that the President and Congress must address and that may affect the foundations of the global economy and the nature of capitalism for years to come."
The advertisement lists attendees in 2011. I guess that this might qualify, officially, as a 1% gathering. It didn't take place in a park, or a plaza, or on the courthouse steps. It wasn't public.
You are NOT invited!
