Checking the Economic Pulse at Davos

Solutions to the world’s economic problems can come from anywhere of course but at Davos, the people coming up with them may actually be in a position to make them real. So, at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, a conference of the world’s leading economic thinkers being held this week, what’s top of mind? How long will the recovery take? What kind of faith is there in the new US administration? Who will be the next economic superpower? We surveyed the hive mind at Davos by taking a look at which conference sessions were currently oversubscribed and which ones had waiting lists. Like a tag cloud, our visualization displays the more popular sessions in larger type. Hover briefly over the session you’re interested in and you’ll see + and – buttons that allow you to zoom in and out on the session titles to learn more.
