TIME 100 List Leaves Out Many Major Business Leaders (PHOTOS)

If one thing in this world's for certain, it's that every list comes with a snub.

TIME released its 2012 list of the 100 most influential people on Wednesday. And according to, well, us over at HuffPostBiz, they missed a couple all-too-important economic and business leaders.

Yes, the TIME 100 list includes a few important economic leaders, such as President Barack Obama, IMF head Christine Lagarde and German chancellor Angela Merkel, who is calling the shots in the European Union's response to the eurozone debt crisis.

But it also leaves out many influential economic and business leaders. Zero big bank CEOs made TIME's cut, for example. The list also leaves out Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, who has aimed to stimulate the economy by buying up a massive amount of mortgage-backed securities and Treasury bonds. That's a big step down from 2009, when TIME named him Person of the Year.

So who else did they miss out on?

Check out the economic and business leaders that the TIME 100 list left out below:
