Forbes magazine has released its list of those women whom it considers to be the most powerful in the world.  “Powerful” in what sense? Well, German Prime Minister Angela Merkel comes in first, so political power seems to matter to Forbes, and Sheila Blair, the chief of the Federal Insurance Deposit Administration (FDIC) in the U.S. comes in second, so, not surprisingly, banking and economics in the U.S. seem to interest the editors of the magazine.  Here is a link to more information about the list:
