Guess who said the following at the World Economic Forum this weekend:

"People who feel the world is tilted against them will spawn the kind of hatred that is very dangerous for all of us. I think it's a healthy sign that there are demonstrators in the streets. They are raising the question of 'is the rich world giving back enough?"

Go on, guess! A brand new, shinny nickel* to the first person to guess correctly, without using a search engine.

*It was going to be a quarter, but we are in a recession, after all.

All good guesses, but no, no, no and, I'm afraid, no. You got closest with Forbes.

(Oh, and of course it couldn't be Bono, since he was playing the half-time show at the Superbowl. Oh! The humanity!)

But Bono had addressed the summit on his way to the Super Bowel! Really!

James saw Bill Clinton speak last week at Berkeley, and that quote meshes nicely with some of the things he was saying...

Bill Gates? Rupert Murdoch? The Forbes hint got me guessing.
