Pope Tops Global Financial Power List, Trump Gets Bumped

10/06/15 3:43 PM EDT
Sorry Donald, you didn’t make the list. Pope Francis topped Worth’s list of the 100 most powerful people in global finance, beating out President Barack Obama for the top spot. Richard Bradley, Editor-in-Chief of the Worth Group, said Pope Francis led the pack because people of all religions are listening as he speaks from the world’s biggest pulpit. 'He can reach an audience all over the world and he is using his pulpit to speak to economic issues like climate change, poverty, global capitalism and immigration,” said Bradley. Bradley said assembling the Worth Power 100 is a year-long effort, with the magazine’s editors reviewing thousands of suggestions, selecting an initial list of 1,000 nominees and ultimately whittling it down to the final 100 names. And while Wall Streeters might see Fed Chair Janet Yellen as more powerful than the President when it comes to moving markets, Yellen comes in seventh on the list while the President takes the second position. German Chancellor Angela Merkel comes in third on the list. Donald Trump didn’t even rank in the top 100 at all. 'We don’t think he is that financially powerful,' said Bradley. 'As a businessman his success is much debated and in terms of his effect on financial policy, it’s an open question.'
