Isn't this special?
Of course George Soros is the Financial Times’ “Person of the Year.” They could hardly have given the award to the embattled Emmanuel Macron. Nor would the retreating Angela Merkel have sent a particularly strong message. Jean Claude-Juncker? Gimme a break.
Yes, it is a sign of the decline of the neo-liberal, rules-based, world order that the best person the FT could muster is an 88-year-old billionaire who confesses to having no guilt over his Nazi-affiliated actions during the Second World War.
Past Financial Times persons of the year include:
- 2017 - Susan Fowler
- 2016 - Donald Trump (US President Elect)
- 2015 - Angela Merkel (Chancellor, Germany)
- 2014 - Tim Cook (CEO, Apple Inc)
- 2013 - Jack Ma (Founder, Alibaba Group)
- 2012 - Mario Draghi (President, European Central Bank)
- 2011 - Mohamed Bouazizi (Arab Spring)
- 2010 - Steve Jobs (CEO, Apple Inc)
- 2009 - Lloyd Blankfein (CEO, Goldman Sachs)
- 2008 - Barack Obama (US President Elect)
As I blogged here earlier today, Cortez might not know much about anything, but she knows exactly what she's doing.
I really appreciate AOC, because she truly does serve as the Righty Blogger Full Employment Act.
Anyway, Bill Whittle, Scott Ott, and Yours Truly take on her latest cringeworthy-yet-highly-effective PR stunt.
Cringeworthy to us, effective with her fans.
BTW, BillWhittle.com is member-supported content if you're at all interested in becoming one of our citizen-producers.
Harsh, but fair.
Hope it goes down in flames.
