In his new book “Davos Man,”  New York Times Global Economics Correspondent Peter S. Goodman exposes the role of elite billionaires in deepening global inequality, often while burnishing a do-gooder image. Goodman joins us to talk about how gatherings like the annual World Economic Forum in Davos help the mega-rich divert attention from their efforts to dodge taxes and fight regulation.

Peter S. Goodman, global economics correspondent, New York Times; author, "Davos Man: How the Billionaires Devoured the World"
