I found that seriously weird as well!

Strange also about some badly updated biographys. A few more hours searching the internet wouldn't have hurt. Or perhaps, just that, a vastly written piece without much substance? That said, I do agree on many people being on the list.

Agreed with the Trone placement. The list (at least the top 10) seems to conflate "influence" with $$$ signs. So if the reason Alvarez-Peters is listed as #1 for her $1.69 billions in wine revenue, why does Trone's $3 billions only gets him to #11.
