The Curious Connections of Klaus Schwab
Klaus Schwab is the personification of “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it”. Let's dig into his life.
Let’s quickly reiterate Klaus Schwab’s life: On March 30th, 1938, he was born in the city of Ravensburg, Germany. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Economics and a Bachelor's degree in Engineering, both from Swiss colleges. In addition, he has a Master's degree in Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. 17 honorary degrees from universities located all around the world, including the School of Economics. That is basically all that Wikipedia is willing to disclose on him.

Other sources reveal a bit more information. His father's name is Eugen, and he worked as a factory director for a subsidiary of a prominent Swiss company called Escher-Wyss in Ravensburg, Germany. Escher-Wyss is a Swiss industrial corporation that focuses on engineering and turbine building. He possessed a German passport, despite having been born in Switzerland in 1899. There is nothing substantial about his mother, except for the fact that both of her parents were from Switzerland. (Constantly screaming that she is related to the Rothschild family cannot be proven and is not helping anyone.)
