But there can be no doubt that the Davos World Economic Forum is the weightiest annual meeting of global business and political leaders. Now in its 40th year, the winter gathering in a cozy Swiss mountain town brings together a remarkably diverse assortment of people, from academics and nonprofit heads to billionaires and celebrities, to discuss the most pressing issues of the day.
