By 2030 You Will Own Nothing and Be Happy

– Klaus Schwab

Where has Schwab ever stated this? Nowhere, this claim originates from one blog post that was speculating about the future, it was never intended to be a part of WEF’s agenda. Conspiracy nuts have then started to regurgitate that claim and blog post around in their own echo chambers.

The WEF does not have a ‘stated goal’ to remove everyone’s private property by 2030. As addressed in previous Reuters fact checks, these claims likely originated from a WEF social media video from 2016 that stated eight predictions about the world in 2030, including: “You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy. What you want you’ll rent, and it’ll be delivered by drone.”

Danish politician Ida Auken, who wrote the prediction in question (here), said it was not a “utopia or dream of the future” but “a scenario showing where we could be heading - for better and for worse.”

In a written update, she clarified that the piece aimed to “start a discussion about some of the pros and cons of the current technological development. When we are dealing with the future, it is not enough to work with reports. We should start discussions in many new ways. This is the intention with this piece.”

And why is Bill Gates there? He has been in some previous G20 Summits like in 2011 when he was invited by Nicolas Sarkozy – but not in this one. Klaus Schwab was at B20 summit that was held concurrently with G20 in Bali.

Although several reports prior to the summit claimed that Gates was planning to attend the event, he was in fact in Kenya, meeting with leaders and officials to discuss developments in health care, agriculture, and information technology.

Gates was interviewed by Kenyan press at the time the G20 summit was taking place and sent a number of tweets while in Nairobi showing him with the country’s leaders.

While neither Bill Gates nor his former wife Melinda attended, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was among three organizations that have committed alongside G20 nations to the launch of an international “pandemic fund.”

Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), did go to Bali, but he was attending B20, a concurrent event that is part of the G20 summit that invites global business leaders for a series of keynote addresses and speeches.

Schwab was among a list of speakers, including SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who delivered talks at B20.

This nuance, however, was missing from the posts questioning why “non-politicians” were attending the summit in Bali.

Stop getting your news from Twitter of all places and spreading false claims made by whackos. Asking that question doesn’t make anyone a conspiracy theorist, if the basic facts are right in first place.

It’s a quite disgusting circus, it’s hunger games age. With meta VR headsets

You voted for Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos by buying and using his products for decades. Even if you use a Mac, or Linux, or BSD, most of the world’s businesses run Windows, and the vast majority use Azure or AWS, and nearly everyone in a First World country shops on Amazon.

I suspect Gates is at G20 not directly because of Microsoft, but because he’s a self-styled philathropist, using his ill-gotten gains to buy himself some moral redemption at the end of his life. He’s probably there as the face of Charities.
