New York, NY (October 17, 2011) – For the second year, Worth has published its annual list of the 100 most powerful people in finance in the October/November 2011 issue.
When Worth published the Worth Power 100 list in October 2010, affairs seemed more stable, financially speaking. The stock market was rising. Employment looked a bit better. Policymakers and businesspeople had apparently gotten the American economy back on its feet. But in recent months those trends have halted or reversed.
Just who are the most powerful people in finance? The private bank heads? The politicians? The central bank chiefs? “The amount of change in the financial landscape meant that trying to rank powerful people was like jumping from ice floe to ice floe—everything kept shifting and sliding underfoot,” according to Emily DeNitto, Worth’s managing editor.
One force, however, remains constant: the central role of American entrepreneurship in driving economic growth. In the end, entrepreneurship, both big and small, will fuel a recovery. That’s why, for the No. 1 person on the list, Worth named Tim Cook, CEO of Apple. “Apple reminds us that it will be American entrepreneurship that gets the country back on its feet again,” said Richard Bradley, editor in chief.
