Period : 2019-01-07 ~ 2019-02-07
Manager's Pro OpinionYes, the readers of Time magazine should choose its “Person of Year”. People's opinion is very valuable. They know who has been the most influential person or group of people in the news. This is also a good way to encourage people to read about what is happening in the world.
Manager's Con OpinionNo, the readers of Time magazine should not choose its “Person of the Year”. People will have very different opinions. Their choice would not represent the correct Person of the Year. The people working at the magazine have a better under Time standing of world news. Therefore, they will choose the most appropriate Person of the Year.
