Mark Carney

Age: 45
Occupation: Governor of the Bank of Canada
Previous TIME 100 Appearances: 0

As the head of the Bank of Canada, Carney had the pleasure of presiding over a financial system that didn't need a single bailout. Canada's banks have long been ranked among the world's soundest, but Carney, who at 45 is the youngest central banker in the G-8, brings a rarely found zest and frankness to the role of top economist.
