Leaders wrap up World Economic Forum at Davos

The World Economic Forum (WEF) concluded Saturday after discussions on issues like poverty and hunger, climate change and globalization.

Current and former heads of state, elected officials, media celebrities, corporate executives and other big names gathered at Davos, a Swiss winter resort, for the well-publicized conference that cost $28,000 to attend.

For many it was the after-hours socializing the proved most fruitful in terms of getting things done.
