Perhaps.  I, personally, wouldn't give a damn about such a ranking if I were rich, except to the extent that it would allow me to pour money into causes that I like.  (Give me Bill Gates's money, and I'll bankrupt the oil business within a decade.)

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

After the millions have been made it's all about the power. My first job out of college was in investment banking so I have intimate experience with this particular psychosis.
