"The annual WEF report is a quirky compendium of disparate data of varying quality, along with opinions from their own survey"

You are being kind.

The report is interesting in some respects but given the life-blood character of the Davos Forum to the WEF - located in a leafy suburb of Geneva - then it is obviously a marketing tool. This year's Competitiveness laurels go to Switzerland. Hurrah. Who would have thought ...

Bill Clinton had to comfort Klaus Schwab (head of the WEF) that he (Bill) was NOT competing with Davos when he organized his philanthropy summit recently in New York. Schwab feared competition and was reluctant to attend the meeting. Surprising for someone who bills himself as "recipient of numerous international and national honours for initiatives in the spirit of entrepreneurship" (Quote from his Bio on the WEF site).

I thought entrepreneur champions where fearless. Got it wrong again, obviously.

I think the problem is apparent when employers are demanding more skills and education than American workers possess while our educational system demands less and less of our children, the future workforce. As long as other countries provide their children with superior and more rigorous education--particularly in math and science--we will continue to need to import skilled workers from those countries.
