For the first in the series, we’ve recorded a special on wealth and business travel at the World Economic Forum.
If you feel that you have a less-than-fair slice of the economic pie, you're not alone. Two percent of the world's population owns half of all global assets, according to a recent report by the World Institute for Development Economics Research.

Where better to discuss the intense concentration of wealth than the richest meeting on earth? And so to start our new series we've travelled to Davos. In between frantic networking, deal making and the occasional party, we've managed to get some of the delegates into our studio - and we've asked them how much wealth is too much.

And on the subject of travel, what's the point of a face-to-face meeting in the age of mobile phones and wireless internet - not to mention climate change? It doesn't look like any of the delegates to the WEF will give up flying anytime soon, but we find out how business travel might change in the future.

This week's guests:

John Allan
Chief Executive of DHL Logistics

Sanjiv Ahuja
Chief Executive of Orange

Steve Forbes
Editor-in-chief of Forbes Magazine, CEO of Forbes Inc

With contributions from:

Simon Freakley
Chief Executive of risk consultancy Kroll

Klaus Schwab
Founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum
About the programme
 
The Bottom Line cuts through the confusion of modern life to find out what's really important to consumers and businesses: the gimmicks, the people, the products - and the relationships.
