graphic-NNNIt is that time of year again when rich people, celebrities, politicians, and the odd decent human being get together to pretend to solve the world’s problem at Davos 2016. Pretending to be seen doing stuff to make the world better means lots of pretentious, pompous, and insane  statements are required. Yet many statements hold two meanings as what they really mean and what they can say. These are often two different things so I have done the tasks of translating the most quoted “quotes” of Davos 2016.
