A well-worn ritual is that in the days preceding Davos folks like me are asked by assorted bystanders, ?what will it all be about this year?. And so as I begin my annual pilgrimage up the Magic Mountain, I find myself musing on this modern koan. Yes, we will surely talk about financial regulation, or perhaps just about the forthcoming assault on bankers. And yes, we will surely wring our hands about Copenhagen and debate how best to move forward. And certainly, we will review progress in emerging from the recession, and I will eat my (much beloved) hat if cadres of American?s do not bemoan the overvalued Renminbi. And without any doubt, domestic US politics (and its global fall-out) will dominate the corridor gossip.
