Next steps for a world at a make-or-break moment: Davos 2022

For years, titans of industry and government have visited the tiny alpine village of Davos in Switzerland to discuss how to fix the world's problems.

Listen: At the 2022 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, it was clear that history is at a turning point, with a war in Europe whose cascading impact can be felt all over the globe.

Ian Bremmer speaks to thought leaders at Davos on the GZERO World podcast. Wolfgang Ischinger, former German Ambassador to the US, thinks the world is in pretty good shape, but worries about Ukraine. Venezuela's former trade minister Moises Naim believes that world affairs are causing great uncertainty around the globe.

But this year, the Ukrainian delegation got a standing ovation from the usual crowd of global business leaders. Gillian Tett, US editor-at-large and chair of the Financial Times board, met with the Ukrainians and shares her perspective with Ian Bremmer in a Global Stage interview. Beyond all the emotion, Tett also believes that when the fighting is over, there will eventually be business opportunities for many people present. She also commented on chatter about using sanctions against Russia to confiscate assets and use them to compensate Ukraine, which she sees as a slippery slope because there are many doubts about due process.
