With a strong political bias, fiery Peter S. Goodman, NEW YORK TIMES global economics correspondent, argues that affluent people have deprived governments of resources needed to serve their people, especially in response to the Covid pandemic. Goodman profiles five international "Davos Men," billionaires, Jeff Bezos of Amazon being one of them. Earnest and appealing, narrator Michael David Axtell moderates the tirade with professional-sounding gravitas. Axtell applies a range of styles and succeeds at an intimidating task--bringing some levity and order to this indictment of the wealthy classes. The usually sleepy Swiss Alps ski resort of Davos is where these men meet at an annual economic forum. Those whose viewpoints are not strongly Left may not enjoy this listening experience. Wealth centralization is the underlying and overarching theme. W.A.G. 2023 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
