Huntington, The Davos Man and The Clash of Civilizations, Ambrose

It was Harvard professor Samuel Huntington who first hurled the epithet “Davos Man” at the new elites 


He warned of a cosmopolitan superclass of 20 million people.. This rootless supra-culture was cornering the gains of the global economy, and capturing ideological power. 

“They have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations,” he wrote.

Prof Huntington has earned his posthumous vindication.
