RE: Define “Power”

Forbes gives each one points ( from 1 to 100 ) according to the following categories:

Pay
Money Rank
TV/Radio Rank
Press Rank
Web Rank
Social Rank

Forbes then tallies them up to determine who cumulatively has the highest score.

That’s the way they look at it.

Yes, but I’m sure you agree with me on Rush and Trump. But who is the third in your opinion?

JK Rowling. Only 17 million? I thought she earned more than that.

She’s a billionaire, but most of her money was earned on her books, which the last one was written a good five years ago.

Folks,

You’re looking at it the wrong way. 17 Does not mean 17 million. 17 means she’s the 17th RICHEST on the Top 100 list.
