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?
