CNBC's Jeff Cox does a roundup of some of Davos' big events this week.» Read More
Coca-Cola may be the best known and widely sold commercial brand in the world. So when the company CEO speaks--a lot of people listen. CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo conducted a rare interview with Coke CEO E. Neville Isdell at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Bartiromo asked Isdell a range of questions ranging from how he plans to combat rising soda prices to how he plans to further grow the company on a global level.
Chief executives worldwide expect growth in markets such as Brazil, China, India and Russia to keep increasing and are optimistic about higher revenues at their companies, but they are concerned about over-regulation and finding enough skilled workers.
CNBC's Maria Bartiromo talks to Lehman Brothers Vice Chairman Tom Russo and E-Trade Financial CEO Mitch Caplan about global issues affecting the financial services sector.
Reporters expecting to link global warming to a snow-free Davos had to change plans quickly as the winter weather finally arrived at the Swiss ski resort. But despite the cold conditions, the overall tone is bullish at the World Economic Forum so far. And being a bear can have adverse consequences.
Another year another WEF. Another chance to experience the almost surreal meet of the world's most powerful people. A meet where any pretence that business, academia, economics and politics are separate entities is dropped. As a journalist I get unparalleled access to almost everyone who is currently espousing the latest ideas of how to make us all better off and who is equally telling us how to avoid up-coming disasters.
