    I didn't say he holds no power, but his power is far less than every other person on your list. The US Government owns the Federal Reserve.

    Bernanke is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve. He's more of the figure face, he doesn't have sole control over what the Federal Reserve does.

    Can't decide if he deserves to be on the list:

    Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary General of UN




    A lot of posters here are confused as to what being powerful means. Just because your name is well-known and stuff doesn't mean you hold any power. Everyone knows who Kim K. is, but she can't just order an attack on Russia or China.
    notoriety=/=influence lol

    The US government has little control over the Federal Reserve. The Fed answers to no one. Its policies don't have to be approved by any branch of the US government (one of the reasons why Ron Paul wants to do away with it). As chairman, Bernanke does hold some clout over the economic policies over the US since the Fed is so secretive about what it does. The Fed could raise/lower interest rates which affects millions of Americans and lower/raise inflation.

    We're not talking about the Feds, I'm well aware of what the Feds can or can't do. Bernanke can ADVISE the government on course of action, and since he doesn't have sole control of the Federal Reserve as he sits on the BOARD OF DIRECTORS, his control is limited. It's like saying the Chief Justice of the USSC can set the laws of country.

    And FYI, Feds don't set interest rates, they set the inter-bank interest rates which affects the ability for Banks to acquire very short loans, which has influence on what banks will set their interest rates at.

    So no, once again Bernanke has no place on any top 10 powers list.

    But Ben Bernanke holds the most power out of all the board of directors. He's the one people criticized when the housing crisis occurred in 2008. He's the Obama consults on matters relating to the economy (one of them anyway).

    And yes, the Fed does set interest rates (limits). It's the individual banks who have to adjust for inflation and choose how much to lend out. What you're thinking of is the federal funds rate which is determined by the reserve requirement.

    It doesn't matter how much power he has among them, he doesn't have sole authority so he can't say INTEREST RATES are going to be 20% and shutdown the US Small Business economy, for good reason too. Bernanke is a figure head, the guy they hold responsible because he is chosen to follow the President's agenda, but doesn't make him any more powerful. He has to convince everyone else to vote the same way he wants... And since that's the case, there's not one thing he can do that a member of Congress can't or a US justice, or pretty much anyone. So how does he rank above people with the power to launch nukes?

    The Feds DO NOT set interest rates, period. I don't know where you've been Googling or regurgitating bullcrap, but it's wrong, and a fairly common misconception. It's determined by the free market, which is why you have such variance between banks and why HUGE BANK X that can never fail doesn't own the entire market and can predatorly price their interest rates. The Federal Funds Rate is what influences Bank Interest Rates. The Feds have plenty of power among banks, especially those in the FDIC program, but setting interest rates aren't one of them.

    And if you are going to say otherwise, you're going to have to show evidence, such as: Prime Rate | Federal Funds Rates Discount Rate Fed Fund Reserve Lending COFI

    The fed funds rate is the primary tool that the Federal Open Market Committee uses to influence interest rates and the economy. Changes in the fed funds rate have far-reaching effects by influencing the borrowing cost of banks in the overnight lending market, and subsequently the returns offered on bank deposit products such as certificates of deposit, savings accounts, and money market accounts.
