Billionaire bewildered that American voters are angry
It's easy to forget sometimes just how cut off from reality that the super-rich can be. Nowhere is this more true than at a meeting of the wealthy elite.
DAVOS, Switzerland — As income inequality and healthcare costs rise in the United States and as an economic slowdown may be on the horizon, one of the world’s richest men expressed surprise that U.S. voters seem so angry in advance of the 2016 presidential election. Speaking at a gathering of corporate and government leaders in Switzerland, Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman told Bloomberg Television that he is bewildered about why Americans seem so discontented.
