Klaus Schwab has been at the helm of the World Economic Forum (WEF) for more than half a century. Nevertheless, there is strong criticism of his position within his own ranks.
A group of current and former WEF employees have contacted the British newspaper The Guardian to voice their gripes. They write that 84-year-old Schwab acts on his own and surrounds himself with “good-for-nothings” who are incapable of running the organization he founded in the early 1970s.
He is in no way accountable to people inside and outside the organization, says the group, which wishes to remain anonymous. “We are hesitant to come forward as Klaus is very well connected and can make life very difficult for us even after we leave the WEF.”
The group of WEF employees says they have posted a critical piece on LinkedIn, but that has been removed at the request of the World Economic Forum, something the organization denies.
The piece reads, among other things, that the WEF is nothing without Klaus and that the board of directors is a “viper’s nest.” The employees expect the board members to be at each other’s throats as soon as Klaus leaves.
Former British Prime Minister, socialist Tony Blair, has been tipped as a possible successor to Schwab.
