Persons of The Year Around the World

Time gave it to US Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke for averting an economic catastrophe. Read his interview where he says that the States need to get rid of the too-big-to-fail problem.

Financial Times awarded it to Goldman Sachs CEO Llyod Blankfein. In response to that the Huffington Post carried a story where a bank analyst cancelled his subscription to FT because he thought it was repugnant and ridiculous.

The Medical News picked Charlie DuBois for doing a lot for the chiropractic profession.

007 was selected by PETA.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was named Cannes Lions 2009 Media Person of the year.

In Mauritius, Le Defi+ chose Manou Bheenick. Great pick. And as you know Kozelidir picked the Mauritian Civil Society.

Samad put up a poll in the final days of 2009 for the Person of the Decade. Jack Bizlall won that with Ashok Subron as runner-up. The BBC also had something along those lines.
