World leaders and captains of industry are gathering for the @wef in @Davos.

@hanswstegeman hopes they really hear the alarm bells toll this time and calls on them to start this one very important discussion: isn’t it time to fundamentally change our economic system?

Two good questions:

1- Has #passive #investing helped drive the mega-cap, FAANG-led, #outperformance over the last five years?

2- And has that led to potential advantages from #active #management at this point in time? -> http://bit.ly/2RIZbwn via @FTSERussell
