Job creation, income inequality, women and healthcare were the choice topics of elite global leaders at the Davos World Economic Forum on its opening day.

The theme this year is "The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business." The Davos Group's publication Global Risks 2014 has noted that the most likely economic risks facing the world today are income disparity and unemployment and underemployment. It'll be a heavy five-day discussion set against the dreamy Swiss Alps of Davos.

Here are highlights for those of you who weren't lucky enough to be invited (or didn't have $44,000 to attend.)
