luiy's insight:

Every year, the World Economic Forum brings together the most recognisable figures of business and politics. With all eyes on Davos, we decided to turn the optics upside down and see who the twitterati gathered in Switzerland follow on social media.

The inner ring of circles represent the 20 most-followed accounts by Davos attendees, while the outer circles are individual attendees.

The structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market competition and financial stability. So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.
