In a world where the 26 richest people own as much as the poorest 50 per

Kongresszentrum in Davos this week. Over the past ten years, however, 
the once thriving mobilisation against the World Economic Forum has lost 
steam. ‘We’ve witnessed a slump,’ Mélinda Tschanz told me. She belongs

founded in 1998. ‘“What happened?” is a question we’ve been asking 
ourselves a lot lately.’
