Paulson. IB And Treasury Secretary? This seems like a twofer.

Second? Dick Fuld.

@DickFuld isn't #1? This is worse than the media who hated on him after he was voted CEO of the year.

Probably Mark Cuban or Larry Ellison.

I've met Mark, but Larry Ellison is suppose to be extremely eccentric. But I think it'd be more fun to think who you'd want to play a round of golf with. That'd be Mark Cuban, Larry Ellison and Jason Witten.

EDIT: Just realize it specifically mentioned banking. But I still stand by my choices. Except I'd choose Marc Andreessen

Correct answer here.

Lew was a God among men.

How the fuck is Thain at 0%? The guy basically won the financial crisis. You guys make me sick.

How is Jamie Dimon #1? His firm is so out of touch that they still require cover letters. Curious, what is the best BB now in your opinion? I know this is like asking Michael Jordan who's the best NBA player right now.

In all honesty I find the big PMs more interesting. Dalio, Soros, Gross, or Icahn would be cool people to meet.
