To become a powerful person, you must wield enormous influence over a very large number of people across the world. The most powerful people in the world usually are heads of state, big corporate CEOs, financiers, philanthropists and top entrepreneurs who indeed run the world. Their decisions influence the lives of millions of people each day.
Take, for instance, some heads of states with militaries at their disposal and even nuclear weapons. A miscalculation or inaccurate decision could mean a conflagration that engulfs all of civilization. Or even CEOs of prominent corporations, whose judgments can alter the course of our lives. Many people’s lives are literally at the hands of the world’s most powerful people.
Here are the top 20 most powerful people in the world.
