Soros, the Hungarian born billionaire, was responsible for the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997 and was dubbed the "man who broke the bank of England" in 1992. Further controversial business deals, it was ruled in 2002 that Soros was involved in insider trading during a French bank takeover bid in 1988. While admitting no wrongdoing, Soros was fined $2,000,000 for his part. - excerpted from George Soros is Pure Evil

Sounds like the feel good event of the season!
Philanthropy as a topic? Sounds like they are looking for ways to be seen as benevolent dictators? Isn’t that sweet?
I wonder what they had for lunch?
Why do we hate the rich so much? Oh that's right, cause we don't have their money.

I am surprised to see Gates involved with a sleaze like Soros. Soros is at the heart of all that is going wrong. I'd have thought they would have forgot to invite him.

I don't get it, whats the big deal here!!!! Ok so they had a little get together SO WHAT!!!!! Last time I checked its not against the law to hang out with like minds and chat it up.
Just because they wanted some privacy doesn't make them dictators. Unless their is some info that I'm missing here this seems to be a little over the top.

The Bilderberger meetings most consist of people we don't know unless we study conspiracies. Those who we do know such as Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller already have an evil reputation across the world, so it won't harm them to join the Bilderberger meetings.
However, we don't want Bill, Warren and Oprah's reputations damaged, do we? Those who everyone loves so much?
So, this was a meeting where Rockefeller could discuss with these people how to bring down the economy in the most efficient and effective manner before he could share it with his fellow Bilderbergers.
In 1995 Winfrey herself confessed to drug use. “And I've often said over the years…in my attempts to come out and say it, I've said many times I did things in my 20s that I was ashamed of, I did things I felt guilty about, but that is my life's great big secret that's always been held over my head,” she explained on her show. “I always felt that the drug itself is not the problem but that I was addicted to the man.” She added: “I can't think of anything I wouldn't have done for that man.” - Oprah quoted in Wikipedia

I think it would be more of a story if the richest people in the world weren't meeting at some point.
Those who resent the wealthy as a reflex will not buy into this, but maybe something positive will com of this. People with $50 Billion might decide to stimulate economies where it's sorely needed and try to get by on a mere $40 Billion.
My guess is there will be sharing of views on pressing issues like "what do we do if the US goes into default?" and "how do we respond to the US dollar moving from being the world reserve currency?"
Myself I don't believe there is a contrived New World Order being put together. The Old World Order served it's purposes for those wanting to attain vast wealth just fine.
With genuine concerns for mass uprisings worldwide and war, it's more in their personal interests to get things back on track rather than find ways of deepening their already deep pockets, don't you think?
It's easy to impute malign intent on anything they do. These people are rich in good part because they aren't stupid.

Where were they when everything went to hell?
Obviously their ability to become the richest in the world has no bearing on their economic abilities
