Young Global Leaders–Anderson Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio Are In The Most Exclusive Private Social Network In The World.
March 18, 2008, 4:00 AM UTC
The World Economic Forum out of Davos just announced its new 2008 list of YGLs—Young Global Leaders. In a growing universe of private social networks, the YGL network has got to be one of—if not THE—most exclusive sn around. A few weeks ago, I predicted that Cameron Sinclair, who founded Architecture for Humanity would become a YGL—and he did.
YGLers can find out who fellow members of the social network are in any particular city around the world by clicking on the map site (can’t do it here, sorry). Works for regions too. Want to chat with a fellow YGLer if you’re visiting Silicon Valley, call up Marc Benioff, Shai Agassi, Sergy Brin, Gavin Newson (San Fran mayor), Jerry Yang or John Battelle. If you’re in New York City, Business News TV star Maria Bartiromo is a YGLer.
Sinclair’s on the list of some 200 new YGLers from 65 countries that include Vikram Akula, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, SKS Microfinance, India (I spent a dinner with Vikram and his outfit is helping hundreds of thousands of people—and has a portfolio of loans that’s sounder than Bear Stearns); Steffi Graf, Founder and Chairperson, ‘Children for Tomorrow’, Germany; Wadah Khanfar, Director-General, Al Jazeera Satellite Network, Qatar; Mugo Kibati, Group Chief Executive Officer, East African Cables, Kenya; Shakira Mebarak, Singer and Manager, Pies Descalzos Foundation, Colombia; and Michelle Peluso, Chief Executive Officer, Travelocity.com, USA; among others. Anderson Cooper anchor on CNN is a new YGL. So is the actor, Leonardo DiCaprio. Eric Anderson, the CEO of Space Adventures made the cut.
We have royalty on the YGL list. The Queen of Morocco, Lalla Salma and the King of Bhutan, H.R.H King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck. The global royal network is not something most of us are connected to but it is fascinating for the Queen of Jordan to bring them into the YGL social network (I’m assuming she’s the one who knows them).
The Director-General of Al Jazeera Satellite Network, Wadah Khanfar from Morocco is a new YGL. So is the Governor of Lousiana, Bobby Jindal.
Hmm.. One of my favorites on the 08 list is George Walker, Managing Director and Global Head of Investment Management for—-Lehman Brothers.
Elon Musk, the chairman of Tesla Motors, the much-publicized electric sports-car company, is a new YGL.
There are other YGLers from the past who are in the social network: Sergey Brin, Co-Founders of Google, USA; Crown Prince Haakon of Norway; Malvinder M. Singh, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Ranbaxy Laboratories, India; Hiroshi Nakada, Mayor of Yokohama, Japan; Nicky Newton-King, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, JSE, South Africa; Carlos Danel, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Banco Compartamos, Mexico; and Jack Ma Yun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Alibaba Group, People’s Republic of China.
The YGL grouping is perhaps the paramount networking network in the

globe. It already includes such notables as Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Co-Founders of Google, USA; Crown Prince Haakon of Norway; Malvinder M. Singh, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Ranbaxy Laboratories, India; Hiroshi Nakada, Mayor of Yokohama, Japan; Nicky Newton-King, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, JSE, South Africa; Carlos Danel, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Banco Compartamos, Mexico; and Jack Ma Yun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Alibaba Group, People’s Republic of China. Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia is YGLer, as is Newsweek’s columnist Fareed Zakaria.
You can check out this year’s winners–and the work the YGLers are doing in health, education and other fields–at the YGL site.
I do have one question when it comes to selecting this unique group of achievers. That’s the selection committee. The selection committee is chaired by Queen Rania of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and is composed mostly of media titans. Here are many of the 31 judges:
Nicolas Beytout Editorial Director, Les Echos, France Carl-Johan Bonnier Chairman, Bonnier AB, Sweden Ferruccio de Bortoli Editor-in-Chief, Il Sole – 24 Ore, Italy Hubert Burda Publisher and Chief Executive Officer, Hubert Burda Media, Germany Carlo Caracciolo Chairman, Gruppo Editoriale l’Espresso, Italy Juan Luis Cebrian Echarri Chief Executive Officer, Grupo Prisa, Spain Chang Dae-Whan Chairman and Publisher, Maeil Business Newspaper and TV, Republic of Korea Mathias Döpfner Chief Executive Officer, Axel Springer AG, Germany Jorge Fontevecchia Publisher and Owner, Diario Perfil, Argentina Steve Forbes President and Chief Executive Officer, Forbes Inc., USA Tom Glocer Chief Executive Officer, Reuters Group Plc, United Kingdom Shekhar Gupta Editor-in-Chief and Group Chief Executive Officer, The Indian Express, India Hisashi Hieda Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Fuji Television Network Inc., Japan Juan-Pablo Illanes Director, Empresa Periodistica El Mercurio SAP, Chile Nabil A. Al Khatib Executive Editor, Al Arabiya News Channel, United Arab Emirates Jihad B. Khazen Director, Al Hayat Newspaper Ltd, United Kingdom Arnaud Lagardère General Partner and Chief Executive Officer, Lagardère SCA, France Giovanni Di Lorenzo Editor-in-Chief, Die Zeit, Germany James R.

O’Reilly Chief Operating Officer, Independent News & Media Plc, Ireland Nduka Obaigbena Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Thisday, Nigeria Aroon Purie Editor-in-Chief and Chief Executive Officer, The India Today Group, India Michael Ringier Chairman, Ringier AG, Switzerland Jonathan Rothermere Chairman, Daily Mail and General Trust Plc (DMGT), United Kingdom Prannoy Roy President, New Delhi Television (NDTV), India Rui Chenggang Director and Anchor, China Central Television, People’s Republic of China Marjorie Scardino Chief Executive, Pearson Plc (The Financial Times Group), United Kingdom Peter Sullivan Group Editor-in-Chief, Independent Newspapers, South Africa Arthur Sulzberger Chairman and Publisher, The New York Times, USA Robert Thomson Editor-in-Chief, The Times, United Kingdom Elizabeth G. Weymouth Washington Post Group, Newsweek, USA Mehmet Ali Yalçindag President and Chief Executive Officer, Dogan Media Group, Turkey.
Is this the optimal group of people to decide on the young global leaders of tomorrow? Aren’t many of them in mainstream media struggling with business models that are melting down, hapless in the face of new technologies? What do you think?
The Time for Silence is Over
A unified pushback against the globalist agenda
It’s finally here, the Global Walkout begins September 4th at 8pm London time and continue every weeks. Next step 4th June 2023.
One step at a time, hand in hand, we are walking out from the globalist society they are trying to enslave us into

The third step is to unsubscribe from all mainstream media outlets. Delete the apps from your phone, laptop, and tablet and unfollow all of their social media and YouTube channels. Try to avoid mainstream media for at least one week, even if the headline is intriguing.
In the same time why not removing all the big tech tracking/spying/social credit system around you: (Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Whatsapp, Zoom, Linkedln, Snapchat, Tumblr, Pinterest, Reddit, Myspace, etc.)
The fourth step of the global walkout is to move as many accounts as you can to a union or local bank.
