Warren Buffett tops list in special "Power Issue;" Bill Gates of Microsoft and Lee Scott of Wal-Mart follow
FORTUNE announced its first list of The 25 Most Powerful People in Business today, naming Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, to the No. 1 spot.
"FORTUNE's list provided a snapshot of who controls the commanding heights of the American economy. We had a straightforward definition of power: the ability to affect the behavior of other people--whether in a company, an industry, the economy, or the world at large" says senior writer Jerry Useem.
"Buffett's company, Berkshire Hathaway, has become an all-American juggernaut, with multibillion-dollar interests in everything from insurance--where Buffett is one of the world's key players--to newspapers, carpets, and cowboy boots," says editor-at-large Andy Serwer of Buffett. "In racking up compound annual returns of nearly 23% over the past 15 years (vs. the market's 12%), Buffett has proved himself the world's greatest investor. As such, his influence on stocks and the market are unparalleled."
