Changing economic and demographic trends 

Social media conversations focusing on emerging and, for many, startling global economic and demographic trends are starting to frame discussions as WEF 2014 quickly approaches.


Income gap and economic inequality

The twitterverse responded at large to Oxfam's new report Working for the few, later republished by The Guardian with the headline Oxfam: 85 richest people as wealthy as poorest half of the world. The titular fact generated many tweets and retweets (#oxfam, #incomegap) as social media conversations ramp up leading to WEF 2014.

Davos participants highlighted additional global trends. Youth unemployment (#youthunemployment) is a issue participants are expecting to discuss. News that 50 percent of the world's population is under 27 (#youth) inspired outward reflection. Also, the rising share of global GPD among Eastern nations (#GDP), particularly China & India, earned a high amount of tweets.
