I don't know how I missed this before.

Laurie Garrett, a Pulitzer-winning journalist, attended the World Economic
Forum in Davos, Switzerland a month ago. She sent a bird's-eye-view to
some friends, and it inevitably leaked out.

You can read her narrative straight up at <URL:

version at <URL:

that takes more than 30 days is going to completely scuttle the boat for
the next 5-10 years.
