Below you will find a list of 40 famous people of all times who have excelled in very different fields - from rulers and conquerors to scientists, artists, philosophers and explorers, or ordinary people who have been as influential as the most illustrious historical figures in history.40 historical figures who have changed the worldIn this list we will briefly talk about 40 of the most influential famous people in the world throughout history. We have included both men and women and have tried to include great people from around the globe, although it is somewhat difficult to avoid a Eurocentric approach when researching human history.
The 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century
Carmen M. Reinhart is the former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank Group. She assumed her position on June 15, 2020, and as such provided the institution with intellectual leadership at a time of unprecedented crisis. He was also in charge of the Bank's Development Economics Department.
Reinhart's areas of expertise are international finance and macroeconomics. His work has contributed to the understanding of financial crises in both advanced economies and emerging markets. She has published extensively on capital flows, exchange rate policy, banking and sovereign debt crises, and contagion.
Considered one of the world's leading economists based on academic publications and citations, Reinhart has been listed among the 50 most influential people in finance (Bloomberg Markets), among the world's top 100 thinkers (Foreign Policy), and among the most influential scientific minds on the planet (Thompson Reuters). In 2018, he received the King Juan Carlos Economics Award and the Adam Smith Award from the National Association for Business Economics (NABE), among others. His book entitled This Time It's Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly (co-authored with Kenneth S. Rogoff), has been translated into more than 20 languages and won the Paul A. Samuelson Prize. He holds a Ph.D. from Columbia University.
The most important person in history
The idea for this list began on February 1, 1998, with a discussion at a symposium in Hanoi, Vietnam. Participants on the panel were former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, then-Stanford Chancellor Condoleezza Rice, publisher Irving Kristol, and Time editor Walter Isaacson.
The Time article cites twenty people in each of five broad categories: Leaders and Revolutionaries, Scientists and Thinkers, Builders and Titans, Artists and Entertainers, and Heroes and Icons. The article also lists the top 100 in each of the five categories.
Of the 100 chosen, Albert Einstein was chosen as Person of the Century, for being the preeminent scientist in a century dominated by science. Time's editors believed that the 20th century "will be remembered above all for its science and technology," and that Einstein "serves as a symbol of all the scientists-such as Fermi, Heisenberg, Bohr, Richard Feynman, ...who built on his work." The magazine's cover featured the famous image of Einstein taken in 1947 by American portraitist Philippe Halsman. The runners-up were Mahatma Gandhi and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
