Michael Bloomberg: FOREVER
Sometimes, thankfully, a quiet, unassuming mensch comes out ahead -- and is remembered accordingly.
Being both the mayor of New York City and the wealthiest man in New York City is an unprecedented feat that won't be soon repeated or forgotten. In years to come, when petty politicians are back in power at City Hall, we'll hearken back nostalgically to our current effacing, efficient executive/mayor.
In the meantime, Bloomberg's name graces a privately held, multibillion dollar media conglomerate, a cable channel, a radio network, a magazine, an 800 ft. office tower, a ubiquitous machine found on the desk of every global trader, banker and money manager and a lauded, $2 billion family foundation . . .Yup, Bloomberg's name will be around for a good long time.
