Why not Busson for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 59-year-old business man, as a 2022 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Busson so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the business man have already been named ‘French Of The Year’ by some major French newspapers and even ‘Paris Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Paris (Arpad Busson's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the business man was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Arpad Busson Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 25 Sep 2022
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveArpad”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 25 Sep 2022
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Arpad Busson?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 25 Sep 2022

Could 2022 officially be the Year of Arpad Busson?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2022 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2022?
