  • REASON TO SMILE: Dr Atul Gawande has got the nod over dozens of other potential candidates for a job that could make him America’s most famous doctor, by far

It’s not every day that Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos and Jamie Dimon find the time to get together and hunt for a suitable candidate for a job that can only be described as extraordinary. These are among the most influential business people in the world, with two of them also being among the richest. Time for all three is, undoubtedly, money… fairly significant amounts at that. Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, is the world’s wealthiest person in 2018 according to Forbes magazine, the first centi-billionaire with a net worth of USD 112 billion--a figure way larger than the economies of several countries in the world. Buffet of Berkshire Hathaway, widely known as the Oracle of Omaha, is third on that global rich list with a net worth of USD 84 billion. Jamie Dimon, a billionaire by net worth, runs JPMorgan Chase, the largest US bank in terms of assets. So who exactly were they looking for?
