A Modest Proposal

As you're more than likely aware, the World Economic Forum at Davos kicked off this week. Though Lloyd Blankfein and Jamie Dimon will sadly not be able to attend, Gary Cohn, John Mack, Vikram Pandit, Bob Diamond, Brady Dougan Brian Moynihan will all be there, in addition to Nouriel Roubini, who's been known to add a certain je ne sais quoi* to most soirees, as well as his wingman, George Soros, and Dan Loeb, who arrived today. Obviously they're all going to be expected to have some "serious talks" about "real solutions" for how we can make this global financial system thing work, have some sit-downs with Maria, play in the snow and what have you. But if I may, I'd like to offer that perhaps you should take this week as an opportunity to do something more important than all that. Like Dance. Dance, puppets, dance! Dance like nobody's watching. Dance like Andrew Ross Sorkin's not taking careful notes regarding who busted out the lawnmower (Vikram) and who got low (Soros). Dance like you're on ecstasy. At the very least dance like Bill Gates. Promise me that.
