In Davos during the WEF, we have government heads like David Cameron, Shinzo Abe, Tony Abbott, and Dilma Rousseff. These are the people who can actually get something done.
I'm a capitalist. I believe in the proper working of the free market. That's why I found the scandals of 2008, the banks, Libor, absolutely abhorrent.
I couldn't sell water in a desert. I have no business acumen. I can tell you why you have no business acumen, and I can tell you why your project may or may not work, but I have no ability to make money.
I am comfortable being gay. Most of my adult life, it's never been a secret. I knew I was gay when I was in high school. I am just fortunate I have lived in two of the most gay-friendly places in the world: New York and London.
The potential of fire on board an aircraft is among the most serious issues in aviation.
Airlines the size of British Airways will need the A380 to increase capacity, and the 787 to increase frequency on heavily traveled routes and open up new long thin routes.
Davos is probably the world's most elite society, but it dresses itself up as a non-elite event. Don't be fooled. You must wear a specially coloured badge, which shrieks your status to others.
Never let it be said that the world of international economics isn't exciting or adventurous. OK, I exaggerate, because not even the most imaginative mind could construe the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank to be a nail-biting barn burner.
When I speak, I ask the people, particularly since there are many of us, 'Where will you spend your hard-earned money? Why spend it where it is not gay-friendly? Why should you spend your money in countries that are not gay-friendly just because they have beautiful beaches?'
Whenever there's a big story with vast potential to get social media content and find out what's happening, your first object is to prod into that and then test it to see whether it's valid. If you don't do the second part, you're basically a bilge pump.
The big story of the day is always going to be driven by what's happened and by the facts and the events.
Whatever happens to bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies are gaining ground and more respect. Ethereum, for instance, has far more transparency.
People even describe the way I speak as sounding like gurgling with broken glass. Some people can't stand me; they hate my voice.
When you travel on Christmas, for you as the traveler - whether you're in 1A or 39D - there is a mental state that you have to put yourself in: that you're traveling at the busiest time of the year, and you're going to take whatever comes your way.
I was fascinated by the fact that in Osaka, we saw people using their cell phones to pay for small goods.
The reality is the three gulf carriers - Emirates, Qatar and Etihad - are forces with which to be reckoned. Strategic investments by co-operative governments have given them large fleets and huge airports. They have created a flourishing environment while established carriers languish.
I hope I'm wrong, but I think the victory of the screen is going to win out. It raises the fundamental question: is the quality of reading and comprehension as good when you read it on a screen as when you read it on a physical paper?
I'm given an enormous amount of freedom, within the constraints of the editorial policies of the network. One of the Quest shows started off with me doing the cancan kicking... you know, the high kick, with dancing girls. We never thought CNN would agree to that.
Markets don't like instability, investors shy away from uncertainty, and consumer confidence goes down in difficult times.
People often talk about parachute journalism, but one of the skills that you get when you are a correspondent is the ability to look at facts fast and work out what the story is.
