This was the week of the world forums. The World Economic Forum 2007 in
Davos started on January 24 and will last until Monday 28, 2007. This
annual meeting is characterized by growing business participation. This

The theme of the 7th annual World Social Forum this week in Nairobi was
“People’s Struggles, People’s Alternatives”. The World Social Forum is

answered questions like “Why is it socially acceptable to hoard wealth
while so many go without basic needs?” or “Does our wealth depend on
the 3rd world being poor?”
