Live from the WEF Today

I watched a live session of the World Economic Forum today – no I am not in Davos but watching this from computer in freezing New York.  I logged on halfway through.  Prez Jonathan sounded good and very presidential.  President Kagame, in asking a question from the floor, was all over the place – unclear what he was trying to say.   President Zuma seemed quiet but then came up with a great remark about how problems which are worldwide are sometimes thought of as only pertaining to Africa – he was responding to a question on youth unemployment.  The best part for me was seeing the very charming Stan and Marion Bergman in the front row – they have been great supporters of Africa in New York and for NYU’s Africa House.
