If you’re paying attention these days, you’ve probably heard about the World Economic Forum and specifically the phrase, “You’ll own nothing and be happy.”
This specific phrase has raised the ire of many Americans who believe that the WEF is more than just a bunch of rich people who get together to talk about policy in Davos once a year.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an international non-governmental organization that is best known for its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The WEF was established in 1971 and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Its mission is to improve the state of the world by engaging leaders from business, government, civil society, and academia to shape global, regional, and industry agendas.
The annual meeting in Davos is the organization’s main event. It brings together leaders from a wide range of sectors and backgrounds to discuss global issues. It’s not clear exactly how much power they wield outside of government, but private industry and people with so much private money can accomplish a lot in terms of steering policy in one direction or the other.
To many people, the idea of eventually owning their own home is a major goal. For people who grew up in poverty, ownership is a very important concept. For others, personal sovereignty and control over their own lives is important.
Those are two big reasons why the comment by Klaus Schwab is so infuriating.
People don’t want a group of out of touch, uber rich people making major decisions for them.
Organizations like the WEF are another good reason to become a real estate investor. Ownership and personal sovereignty are good things. And, you may change someone’s life by selling them some of your real estate.
