No worries at WEF about monkeypox – Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield is in Davos, Switzerland for the 2022 World Economic Forum (WEF).
The world’s elites have been gathering at the WEF since German engineer and economist Klaus Schwab founded it in 1971.
The WEF is funded by thousands of large, global companies and public subsidies.
It views its mission as "improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas".
Mandy Wiener interviewed Whitfield (scroll up to listen).
