27. Carl Ic­ahn

Forbes - - PROMOTION — DAN FRANCIS -

Ic­ahn has been re­shap­ing cor­po­rate Amer­ica for decades, but his re­cent ef­forts to shake up Washington did not go as well. He ad­vised his friend Don­ald Trump on is­sues in­volv­ing reg­u­la­tory over­haul dur­ing the first months of his pres­i­dency but left the post amid a con­flict-of-in­ter­est con­tro­versy that he de­nied. He is cur­rently bat­tling back from a slump that saw his in­vest­ment fund lose money for 3 straight years. Ic­ahn has lately been hedg­ing his port­fo­lio, con­vinced the stock mar­ket is headed for trou­ble. Pushed into med­i­cal school by his mother, he dropped out be­cause he hated it.
