Well, was Foreign Policy really interested in "global thinkers"?

It seems they were honoring more leaders, who are rich or powerful and "do" a lot.

"Warren Buffett and Bill Gates for stepping up as the world's states falter."
Great that they donate so much in such a smart way and I hope they can convince other billionaires to join their efforts, but is that "thinking"?

"Zhou Xiaochuan for holding the world's economic fate in his hands."
Smart and powerful policy maker, who is advancing China's goals, but how is he contributing to the "global marketplace of ideas", which is what the "thinkers" in this list are supposed to be doing.
