In interviewed Huguette Labelle, former head of the Canadian International Development Agency in Davos last week about her thoughts on the world's number one issue: "Corruption kills," she says. "The World Bank estimates that the cost is $1.3 trillion a year. This is in the form of bribes, tax evasion, money laundering."
"Severe income disparity" is the most likely risk facing business and political leaders according to the World Economic Forum's Global Risk 2012 Report. This finding really caught me by surprise. So while the Occupy movement isn't anywhere on the agenda, here at Davos, its impact has been very much felt.
