Peter Goodman ties the rise of the billionaire class to a decline in the liberal democratic order in his book “Davos Man: How the Billionaires Devoured the World “ and explained how the World Economic Forum functions like “billionaire therapy: a place where the very rich go to reassure themselves that they are the solution to social ills rather than the problem.”
