The Global Elite Just Gathered at a Secretive Mini Davos

• Yahoo News

It was past midnight on Friday when the Swiss investor Guy Spier finally left the James Joyce pub in Zurich, after a night of carousing with luminaries of finance, government, and academia. The group had assembled for World.Minds—an under-the-radar fraternity for the global elite—which had just concluded its annual symposium.

The summit fashions itself as "the thinking man's Davos," one staff member told The Daily Beast. This year, scientists presented research on nuclear fusion and forensics, former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert detailed a peace plan for the Middle East, and members discussed the crisis in Ukraine.

"I have three friends that I made at World.Minds," Spier said after a few glasses of wine. "Two are Fields Medalists."
