I always agonize while compiling a list of the 10 greediest Americans of the year. Every holiday season, I find so many candidates deserving this distinction that bankers alone could fill this list. Or fast-food CEOs.
Male masters of the universe again dominate this year’s top 10. But for the first time since 2008, two women made the cut. Neither of them rates as a global powerhouse of avarice. Still, both really do belong. Their stories tell us quite a bit about our despicably unequal times.
