Why is Pamela Anderson not in the list?ReplyDelete
Seriously, I don't believe in the numerous lists that comes up from time to time. We don't have any idea on what parameters these are calculated...I reckon pure gimmick...
Good Question.. we don't know the parameters.. but go by 'Forbes' reputation..
isnt sonia president of INC and Sarad Pawar president of NCP?ReplyDelete
Ok..I will go by it...Still I don't think someone can come up with an Index to decide Who is the most influencial person and all...Do you think for a moment that Indira Nooyi can stop the war in Iraq by her talks..if she can do it...I have to retract my statement..otherwise I strongly beleive these are all gimmicks.ReplyDelete
I give below an explanation by Forbes as to how they come out with such a list.ReplyDelete
"Our annual listing of the 100 most powerful women in the world is based on a power ranking that is the composite of visibility (measured by press citations) and economic impact. The later, in turn, reflects three things: résumé (a prime minister is more powerful than a senator); the size of the economic sphere over which a leader holds sway; and a multiplier that aims to make different financial yardsticks comparable. For example, a politician is assigned a gross domestic product number but gets a low multiplier, while a foundation executive is assigned the foundation’s assets but gets a high multiplier".
I do not if the above explanation makes any sense to the readers.
you are right.. INC and not NCP....
I would take this for what it's worth.. These lists 'invented' by someone to 'rate' based on some criteria.. like state first / best actor / best whatever... Forbes has a reputation and that's what carries weight for 'ratings' like this..
Thanks for the criteria...
