Douglas Besharov Is Too Busy for Davos!

An ongoing photographic inquiry.

Hey, Douglas Besharov! You’re a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research and a professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Affairs. You were the first director of the U.S. National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect. Your most recent book is Recognizing Child Abuse: A Guide for the Concerned. Are you going to the World Economic Forum, familiarly known as “Davos,” when it meets Jan. 31-Feb. 4 in New York City?

No, Chatterbox.

Why Not?

Too busy!

Lost the invitation that never came.

Whatcha gonna do instead?

Going shopping for my own private plane.

That sounds a lot more important! Chatterbox will spend the next few days inviting prominent thinkers and doers in Washington to Don the Shirt. Are you too busy for Davos? Chatterbox is!
