Elon Musk Linked to World Economic Forum?

Elon Musk has previously stated that he declined an invitation to the World Economic Forum.

Musk’s response was to a tweet linking to an archived 2008 Bloomberg article that cites him as a WEF Young Global Leader.

Elon Musk, the chairman of Tesla Motors, the much-publicized electric sports-car company, is a new YGL.

“My reason for declining the Davos invitation was not because I thought they were engaged in diabolical scheming, but because it sounded boring af lol,” Musk elaborated.


Musk has openly criticized the elitist Davos conference and reportedly hasn’t been invited to attend since 2015.

From Insider:

Musk, a vocal critic of the conference who was the world’s richest person until December, recently said he was invited to the conference but chose to skip it. The organizers of the WEF, however, beg to differ: They say the Twitter CEO hasn’t been invited in nearly a decade.

WEF spokesperson Yann Zopf told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the last time Musk was invited was “not this year and not recently — last time in 2015.” Musk never registered or attended on the handful of occasions he was invited to the conference in the 2010s, Zopf told the AP.

“How is WEF/Davos even a thing? Are they trying to be the boss of Earth!?” Musk wrote in another tweet.

“WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want,” Musk said.

Despite Musk’s legitimate criticisms of the globalist sociopaths, this writer has a question for him.

Why is Elon Musk’s brother, who sits on the board of multiple companies owned by him, listed as a World Economic Forum agenda contributor?


From the WEF:

Kimbal Musk is the Co-Founder of The Kitchen, a growing family of businesses that pursues an America where everyone, everywhere has access to real food. His restaurants source food directly from local farmers, stimulating the local farm economy to the tune of millions of dollars a year. His non-profit builds Learning Gardens in schools around the U.S. reaching hundreds of thousands of students every school day. His urban, indoor vertical farming accelerator, seeks to empower thousands of millennials to become real food farmers. Kimbal is on the board for Chipotle, Tesla, and SpaceX.

From Wikipedia:

Kimbal James Musk (born 20 September 1972) is a South African restaurateur, chef, and entrepreneur. He owns The Kitchen Restaurant Group, a collection of “community” restaurants located in Colorado and Chicago. He is the co-founder and chairman of Big Green, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has built hundreds of outdoor classrooms called “Learning Gardens” in schoolyards across America. Musk is also the co-founder and chairman of Square Roots, an urban farming company growing food in hydroponic, indoor, climate controlled shipping containers. Musk currently sits on the boards of Tesla Inc. and SpaceX, both of which his brother Elon is the current CEO. He was on the board of Chipotle Mexican Grill from 2013 to 2019. He is the brother of Elon Musk and Tosca Musk, son of Errol and Maye Musk, and a major shareholder in Tesla.

Elon Musk recently hired NBCUniversal’s Linda Yaccarino, who has ties to the World Economic Forum, as Twitter’s new CEO.

New Twitter CEO Follows The Same People You Probably Do?

I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter! @LindaYacc will focus primarily on business operations, while I focus on product design & new technology,” Musk said.

“Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app.”
