Two Israelis have made Foreign Policy
magazine's list of "Top 100 Global Thinkers," which was released this week and offers a "portrait of 2010's global marketplace of ideas and the thinkers who make them."
Taking the 28th place, and making him the highest-ranked Israeli, was Better Place CEO Shai Agassi, which FP
described as "an electric-car prophet." Agassi's Better Place startup, which has been developing infrastructure for electric cars so they can be used by the masses, has pulled in more than $700 million in venture capital, with several countries around the world announcing plans to build his networks.
Renown author David Grossman was the other Israeli to make the list, coming in at number 89, and chosen by FP
"for using fiction to tell the truth about Israel's open wounds."
