Jan. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg News Editor-At-large Matthew Miller examines the billionaires of Davos and the newest addition to the ranks, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Bloomberg Television’s “Market Makers.”

On the billionaire trail.

Not so many this year.

On the schedule, it says there are more than 80. we have had a couple of meetings canceled.

We have not been able to take as many pictures as we have in years past.

I saw your billionaires at lunch picture.

We saw a couple.

Are you saying not as many american haters, russian -- american and russian hitter?
