Winding Road of Davos Conversation

Posted By: Kim Khan

While most conversations in WEF start off paying homage to the E of economics, delegates get burned out quickly. By Thursday afternoon, talk of markets and finance can take a back seat.

I approached Harvard Professor Niall Ferguson with an eye to asking him about his latest book. "Civilization: The West and the Rest" is an examination of 600 years of history and how the West managed to dominate. A fascinating topic.

And, really, after a few drinks, sleep-deprived, hedge-fund managers can wager on some pretty odd things.

On CNBC, C. Fred Bergsten, director of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, made a bold proposition. He bet a steak dinner at the WEF annual meeting 2012 if the US economy doesn't grow 4.0 percent this year.
