There are innumerable perspectives, some of which are valid. One potentially valid perspective sees from this article & the one that preceded it (by the same writer on the same subject) that if the female spouse (significant other) of WEF luminaries are thus treated as nonpersons, the question of how much less-valued are those not in attendance (not invited) arises. Such a view might not be the intended message of the writer, & the Forum’s purpose might not be to render non-attendees mere subjects of the invited men; the articles’ anecdotes could still imply that influence over global economic/political/academic agenda belongs to a select few, the billions of uniformed non-attendees mere docile cattle oblivious of their path or purpose. This comment is not to accuse any party of wrongdoing; rather, it searches the status quo for the absolute meaning & relative value of the uninvited-billions’ humanity. One certainly hopes the invited men to attend in service to others & make the world a better place.

Why not just ‘stay home’? If they stay home, they will make an ‘eco-contribution’ by means of the forgone pollution from the forgone- transportation.

But if they know what to expect, why bother to attend? The wives could organize a ‘boycott’ or even a ‘sit-in’ or a —‘occupy Davos’!

Why does your spouse?
