Davos Man: How The Billionaires Devoured The World By Peter S. Goodman(paperback) Business Book
From the New York Timesâ€™s Global Economics Correspondent, a masterwork of explanatory journalism that exposes how billionairesâ€™ systematic plunder of the worldâ€”brazenly accelerated during the pandemicâ€”has transformed 21st-century life and dangerously destabilized democracy. “Davos Man will be read a hundred years from now as a warning. … Deliciously rich with searing detail, the clarity is reminiscent of Tom Wolfe.” â€”EVAN OSNOS The history of the last half century in America, Europe, and other major economies is in large part the story of wealth flowing upward. The most affluent people emerged from capitalism s triumph in the Cold War to loot the peace, depriving governments of the resources needed to serve their people, and leaving them tragically unprepared for the worst pandemic in a century. Drawing on decades of experience covering the global economy, award-winning journalist Peter S. Goodman profiles five representative “Davos Men”â€“members of the billionaire classâ€“chronicling how their shocking exploitation of the global pandemic has hastened a fifty-year trend of wealth centralization. Alongside this reporting, Goodman delivers textured portraits of those caught in Davos Manâ€™s wake, including a former steelworker in the American Midwest, a Bangladeshi migrant in Qatar, a Seattle doctor on the front lines of the fight against COVID, blue-collar workers in the tenements of Buenos Aires, an African immigrant in Sweden, a textile manufacturer in Italy, an Amazon warehouse employee in New York City, and more. Goodmanâ€™s rollicking and revelatory exposÃ© of the global billionaire class reveals their hidden impact on nearly every aspect of modern society: widening wealth inequality, the rise of anti-democratic nationalism, the shrinking opportunity to earn a livable wage, the vulnerabilities of our health-care systems, access to affordable housing, unequal taxation, and even the quality of the shirt on your back. Meticulously reported yet compulsively readable, Davos Man is an essential read for anyone concerned about economic justice, the capacity of societies to grapple with their greatest challenges, and the sanctity of representative government.
