Up in the Swiss Alps, the annual meeting of CEOs, prime ministers and other international bigwigs convenes this week with the annual World Economic Forum in Davos. Meanwhile, in Montreux, “Geneva II” Syria peace talks begin. Look for some juggling among several attendees at both, as well as wooing of a more open Iran by Davos business leaders. Both meetings kick off on Wednesday. While no one seems to dispute the need for peace in the Middle East, some question whether, in this digital age of entrepreneurship, old-school Davos-style networking is still worthwhile.
