Davos, The World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab & the Great Reset

The Clarksvillian

Economist Ernst Wolff believes an alliance of political and corporate leaders is exploiting the pandemic with the goal of crashing national economies and introducing a global digital currency.

Over 190 governments worldwide dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic nearly identically through lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccination cards. The common thread may appear with the Young Global Leaders School, which was established and managed by Klaus Schwab, the founder, and CEO of the World Economic Forum. And it is not an accident that many of today’s prominent political and business leaders have passed through the program on their way to the top of their industries. Schwab isn't hiding anything. If you're interested, you can read all about The Great Reset in his book with the same title.

German economist, journalist, and author Ernst Wolff has revealed several facts about Schwab’s "Young Global Leaders" that are relevant to understanding world events during the pandemic. While Wolff is mainly known as a critic of the globalist financial system, recently he has focused on bringing to light what he sees as the hidden agenda behind the anti-Covid measures being enacted around the world.

The World Economic Forum is best known to the public for the annual conferences held at Davos, Switzerland, which bring together global political and business leaders. Today, it is one of the most important networks in the world for the globalist power elite, funded by approximately 1,000 multinational corporations. The Forum initially focused on bringing together people from different economic fields but soon began attracting politicians, media figures, and celebrities.

The Great Reset?

In 1992, Schwab established a parallel institution, the Global Leaders for Tomorrow School, which was re-established as Young Global Leaders in 2004. Members of the school’s very first class included Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Tony Blair. There are approximately 1,300 graduates of this school with a list of alumni that includes names of leaders in the health institutions of their respective nations. Four are former and current health ministers for Germany, including Jens Spahn, who has been Federal Minister of Health since 2018. Schwab appointed Philipp Rösler, who was Minister of Health from 2009 until 2011, as the WEF’s Managing Director, in 2014.

Other notable names on the school’s roster are Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, along with other global health authorities that have praised stringent lockdown measures; Emmanuel Macron, the President of France; Sebastian Kurz, who was until recently the Chancellor of Austria; Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary; Jean-Claude Juncker, former Prime Minister of Luxembourg and President of the European Commission; and Annalena Baerbock, the leader of the German Greens, who was the party’s first candidate for Chancellor in this year’s federal election, and who is still in the running to be Merkel’s successor. We also find California Governor Gavin Newsom on the list, as well as the former presidential candidate and current US Secretary of Transportation Peter Buttigieg. All these politicians who were in office during the past two years favored harsh responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, which also ballooned their respective governments’ power.

  • Peter Buttigieg, Young Global Leaders Class of 2019

  • Emmanuel Macron, Young Global Leaders Class of 2017

But the school’s list of alumni is not limited to political leaders. We also find many of the captains of private industry, including Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Virgin’s Richard Branson, and the Clinton Foundation’s Chelsea Clinton. Again, all of them expressed support for the global response to the pandemic and reaped considerable profits because of those measures.

Wolff believes the individuals behind the WEF and the Global Leaders School determine future political leaders. Although Wolff stresses, he does not believe Schwab himself is the one making these decisions but is merely a facilitator. He further points out that the school’s alumni include not only Americans and Europeans, but also people from Asia, Africa, and South America.

In 2012, Schwab and the WEF founded yet another institution, the "Global Shapers Community," which brings together those identified by them as having leadership potential from around the world who are under 30. Approximately 10,000 participants have passed through this program to date, and they regularly hold meetings in 400 cities. Wolff believes it is another proving ground where future political leaders are being selected, vetted, and groomed before being positioned in the world’s political apparatus. "The Global Leaders" graduates have very few associations apart from their participation in the program prior to being elevated to positions of power. That connection may have linked Schwab’s institutions as the decisive factor in launching their careers. The overarching theme contends their roles are only to function as mouthpieces for the talking points of their backers. It is difficult to determine exactly how the school operates. In the school’s early years, the focus involved the members of each class meeting several times per year, including a ten-day "executive training" session at the Harvard Business School. These opportunities to meet classmates and become part of a wider network are vitally important as the graduates then establish contact. Today, the school’s program includes courses offered over the course of five years at irregular intervals, which overlap with the beginnings of its participants’ political or professional careers, which include regular visits to Davos. Emmanuel Macron and Peter Buttigieg, for example, were selected for the school less than five years ago, which means it is possible they have been regularly attending Young Global Leaders-related programs while in political office and may in fact still be attending them today.

Networks of Wealth and Influence

The WEF’s current Board of Trustees includes such luminaries as Christine Lagarde, former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund and current President of the European Central Bank; Queen Rania of Jordan, who has been ranked by Forbes as one of the 100 most powerful women in the world; and Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, the largest investment management corporation internationally, which manages approximately $9 trillion annually.

By tracing the connections between the school’s graduates, they can continue to rely on each other for support of initiatives long after they took part in the Global Leaders programs have ended.

It is also understood that many elite universities play roles in the WEF process and should no longer be viewed as operating outside of the fields of politics and economics. Wolff cites the example of the Harvard Business School receiving millions of dollars from donors annually, as well as the Harvard School of Public Health, which was renamed the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health after it received $350 million from the Hong Kong-born billionaire Gerald Chan. The same is true of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, which became the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health after media mogul Michael Bloomberg donated $1.8 billion to the school in 2018.

The Alliance of Big Business and Government

The primary goal of the WEF’s activities is to further increase partnerships between high-level cooperation and international governments. An example? The pharmaceutical industry’s international reach is considerable: Wolff also mentions a Global Leaders alumnus. Bill Gates had a history of an established business with Pfizer, one of the primary producers of the controversial mRNA anti-Covid vaccines. Not coincidentally, Gates has become one of the foremost champions of lockdowns and the Covid vaccines since they became available, and The Wall Street Journal has reported that his foundation had made approximately $200 billion in "social benefits" from distributing vaccines before the pandemic began. One can only imagine the vaccine profits of today.

Digital technology, which is now all-pervasive, is also playing a prominent role in the elite’s global designs. Wolff highlights that BlackRock, run by Global Leaders alum Larry Fink, is presently the largest advisor to the world’s central banks and has been collecting data on the world financial system for over 30 years now, and undoubtedly has a greater understanding of how the system works than the central banks themselves.

Wolff believes that one goal of many governments' current policies is to destroy the businesses of small and medium-sized entrepreneurs so that multinational corporations based in the United States and China can monopolize business everywhere. Because of the lockdown measures that have devastated the middle class, Amazon, which was led until recently by Global Leaders alum Jeff Bezos, has made enormous profits.

The next large target is the introduction of digital bank currency. Only recently, China’s International Finance Forum, which is like the WEF, proposed the introduction of the digital yuan, which could be internationalized by the Diem blockchain-based currency network. Interestingly, Diem is the successor to Libra, a cryptocurrency that was first announced by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook, showing that a global currency that will transcend the power of either the dollar or the yuan and be managed through the cooperation of Chinese, European, and American business networks, is currently being discussed. The International Finance Forum’s supervisory board includes such names as the WEF’s Christine Lagarde; Jean-Claude Trichet, the former President of the European Central Bank; and Horst Köhler, the former Head of the International Monetary Fund.

Strategists explain that lockdowns and subsequent bailouts over the past two years have left many nations on the verge of bankruptcy. To avoid an economic catastrophe, governments around the world drew on $650 billion in special drawing rights, or SDRs, which are supplementary foreign exchange reserve assets managed by the International Monetary Fund. When these eventually come due, it will leave those same governments in a crisis, which is why introducing digital currency has become a sudden priority – and this may have been the hidden purpose of the lockdowns all along.

It is known that two European countries are already prepared to use digital currency: Sweden and Switzerland. Not coincidentally, Sweden has zero lockdown restrictions and Switzerland has only taken exceptionally light measures. He contends a fresh round of lockdowns may loom to finish the world’s economies for good, leading to massive unemployment and introducing Universal Basic Income and the use of a digital currency managed by a central bank. This currency might be restricted, both in terms of what individuals can spend it on and in the period in which one must spend the currency.

This also shows inflation as being an inevitable consequence of the WEF process. National governments, after taking loans from central banks, introduced approximately $20 trillion into the global economy in less than two years. Whereas previous bailouts were directed into the markets, these latest bailouts were directed at individuals, and as a result, this increased the prices of products ordinary people purchase, such as food.

The conclusion is an uncomfortable understanding that our former definitions of democracy may no longer apply. Perhaps not - not until the hint of our next lockdown appears under the flimsiest of justifications.
