Top 20 Most Powerful People In The World For 2015

The men and women who make up who Forbes has deemed to be the most powerful people in the world for 2015 represent quite the cornucopia of humanity. As has been the case in the past, this year’s list includes successful and wealthy executives. Famous world leaders are featured in the top three spots of the 2015 list. There is also one religious head who makes new fans around the world for certain opinions that he has expressed and also for trips that he has made. Nobody makes everybody happy all of the time, of course, and some who claim to be members of his religion have criticized that individual over the years.

The famous song says that we live in a “man’s world.” That take is represented in the Forbes piece. Five of the people who ranked in the top six spaces of the Forbes list are men. The man commonly referred to as the “leader of the free world” understandably makes the cut, but he is behind two other world leaders. One of those power people has, per the information that has been used by Forbes, been the most powerful woman in the world for the past decade. The other is a man who seemingly believes that he can get away with just about anything. Somewhat worrisome about that is that he has not been proven to be wrong.
