Senior Fellow Stephen Kinzer in The Boston Globe, "The impulse behind this list-keeping is classically American. We imagine our country as above all base motives, not mired in greed or base self-interest, and therefore able to judge others impartially. In fact, the lists we publish are highly politicized."
