Umm, no….

On the list of the world\’s top self made women:

3. Elena Baturina, Russian, Construction, 2.9 billion

The description of \”self made\” for the fortune made in construction by the wife of the Mayor of Moscow slightly cheapens the value of the phrase \” self made\” don\’t you think?

You know, that Mayor of Moscow who has spent the last 20 years deciding who gets the privatised state property, who gets the planning permission and who gets the City contracts?

  1. Shurely shome mishtake!

    Definitely all her own work!!
    How could it be otherwise?

    (Wonder who’s on the board of her company?)

  2. >1. Wu Yajun, Chinese, Property development, 3.9 billion

    She sounds dubious, too.

    On the other hand:

    >2. Rosalie Mera, Spanish, Clothing, 3.5 billion

    The founder of Zara. Really magnificent.

  3. And doubtless her “earnings” are quite safe from any anti-corruption investigator or judge, courtesy of the City of London.
