Forbes is out with its list of the world’s most powerful people, starting with Obama, Putin and Hu.
In a cool twist this year, the magazine also asked certain bigshots to name their own power list. Here’s who Bill Gross named as the most powerful people in finance:
- Ben Bernanke
- Tim Geithner
- Christine Lagarde
- Angela Merkel
- Wen Jiabao
- Nouriel Roubini
- Mohammed El-Erian
Forbes listed these people in a different order in the overall list.
Merkel ranked highest among them at #4, followed by Bernanke at #8; Wen at #14; Geithner at #18; Lagarde at #29. Gross himself made the list at #54. Roubini and El-Erian did not.
