It's in the Alps and it involves powerful people hobnobbing. But this is not the G-7 or Davos, it's the highly exclusive Bilderberg meeting, an altogether more discreet affair that started Thursday.Held in an Austrian luxury hotel cordoned off by armed police and with military choppers overhead, this four-day pow-wow brings together around 140 movers and shakers from politics, high finance, business and academia.Those present include British Finance Minister George Osborne, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, senior figures from the media and even royalty in the form of Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands.
